Ships during the Baroque period usually had four masts as well as gigantic figureheads, usually representing angels or other divine beings that were believed to protect the ship, that could only be installed in place once the ship’s stemhead was fixed in place. The recently-discovered wreck of the Endeavor, a Royal Navy warship from the Baroque age known to have been destroyed in a battle, has a stemhead but not a figurehead. Clearly, the figurehead must have been either destroyed or detached from the ship during the battle it was part of.

Which of the following would most help to assess the conclusion above?

A) Whether the figurehead on Endevaor was similar to that found on other ship-wrecks from the Baroque period

B) Whether a stemhead could have been installed for purposes unrelated to holding a figurehead

C) Whether the historians unanimously agree that the Royal Navy actually participated in the battle in which it was known to have been destroyed in

D) Whether ships from periods other than the Baroque also had stemheads to support figureheads

E) Whether most military ships of the Baroque period were mounted with figureheads

+1 Kudo if it helped you.

Question Type: Evaluate

Conclusion: figurehead must have been either destroyed or detached from the ship during the battle.

A)Whether the figurehead on Endeavor was similar to that found on other ship-wrecks from the Baroque period - Compares figurehead on Endeavor with the figurehead on other ship wrecks, but have to evaluate whether the ship had a figurehead.

B)Whether a stemhead could have been installed for purposes unrelated to holding a figurehead - Correct.

C)Whether the historians unanimously agree that the Royal Navy actually participated in the battle in which it was known to have been destroyed in - Out of context. We are not concerned whether the historians unanimously agree or disagree.

D)Whether ships from periods other than the Baroque also had stemheads to support figureheads - Talks about periods other than the Baroque period.

E)Whether most military ships of the Baroque period were mounted with figureheads - We are talking about the ship Endeavor in particular. So most military ships might have had a figurehead, but Endeavor might not have had a figurehead. Hence it does not help us to evaluate whether the ship Endeavor had a detached/destroyed figurehead.
