Some authors have challenged the common perception of the Italian Renaissance as a time of creativity and positive change. For example, the Dutch historian Johan Huizinga argued that the Renaissance caused the death of the Latin language due to its insistence on using the classical form of Latin.

It can most reasonably be inferred from the passage above that

A. Latin was still a living language during the Renaissance.
B. The death of the Latin language was a negative effect of the Renaissance.
C. The classical form of Latin was preferred during the Renaissance.
D. Other forms of Latin had been corrupted by the time of the Renaissance.
E. Classical Latin is a lesser form of Latin than that spoken during the Renaissance.

IMO A
The answer is A. Latin was still existing during the Renaissance.In the paragraph it is mentioned that insistence on using the classical form of Latin brought about the downfall of Latin language during the Renaissance according to the historian Johan Huizanga. This clearly indicates the presence of Latin as a language during the Renaissance.Please give me kudos. I need them badly to increase my score.

IMO it should be A.
B- we can not comment if the effect was positive or negative
C- if it was preferred it would not have caused the death of Latin
D- out of scope
E- no evidence in the stimulus

Hence, A.
