Q3 - how is the answer E) ?

Most existing maps of Native American lands are reconstructions that are based largely on archaeology, oral reports, and evidence gathered from observers' accounts in letters, diaries, and official reports; accordingly, the accuracy of these maps is especially dependent on the mapmakers' own interpretive abilities.

how did we infer that?


because they are interpretations and not first hand records. clearly mentioned in the first paragraph

Passage map
p1: discuss the formation of early maps made by non-native americans
p2: discuss what the maps lack - genuine native american information


Q3 - Inference
Info about existing maps of Native American lands is in P1.
A - we don't have information to infer this. We are only told the types of sources used, such as diaries, and that the accuracy was dependent on mapmakers' own interpretive abilities
B - Again, we can't infer this from what we have.
C - We aren't led to believe that any archaeology evidence is outdated.
D - We don't know that oral reports are more accurate than written evidence, we just know that both are used in making the maps. Incorrect
E - This is true. We can infer this as we are told "most existing maps...are reconstructions that are based largely on ..evidence x, evidence y, evidence z". There is no evidence here concerning the mapmakers first-hand observations. We just know that the accuracy of the map was based on the mapmakers interpretation of the evidence, not of their interpretation of the actual locations first-hand. Correct
