Which of the following most logically completes the argument?

The attribution of the choral work Lacrimae to the composer Pescard (1400 – 1474) has been regarded as tentative, since it was based on a single treatise from the early 1500’s that named Pescard as the composer. Recently, several musical treatises from the late 1500’s have come to light, all of which name Pescard as the composer of Lacrimae. Unfortunately, these newly discovered treatises lend no support to the attribution of Lacrimae to Pescard, since _______.

(A) the treatise from the early 1500’s misidentifies the composers of some of the musical works it considers

(B) the author of the treatise from the early 1500’s had no very strong evidence on which to base the identification of Pescard as the composer of Lacrimae

(C) there are works that can conclusively be attributed to Pescard that are not even mentioned in the treatise from the early 1500’s

(D) the later treatises probably had no source for their attribution other than the earlier treatise

(E) no known treatises from the 1600’s identify Pescard as the composer of Lacrimae

IMO D.

If later treatises are based on the previous one which apparently is not considered genuine or valid, then later treatises do not provide sufficient evidence.

OA is D. Thanks economist.
I have observed from the forum that your hit ratio and explanation of CR is really good.
My exam is in 2 weeks of time.
Any tip for CR?

My guess is D

This is the way I understood it:
Lacrimae is believed to be composed by Pescard but even that is in doubt. Recently the treatises have attributed the work to Pescard. However, one cannot say Lacrimae was composed by Pescard because:

D is the best answer for me

I narrowed them down to A & D. However the passage doesn't provide any information about the 'misidentification'. But it is possible that later treaties could be wrongly identified as there were no other sources than the earlier treaties. Since earlier ones are tentatively accepted, the later ones may not be accepted at all!
Therefore IMO D.

P.S. Certain words in the para may not be easily identifiable, however it is important to understand the gist that the passage conveys. Think of 'treaties' as a 'work of art', for instance.

between B and D,went for B rejecting D just because the later treatise were based on an earlier treatise.I believed that the answer choice is assuming that the earlier treatise is not very reliable source.

However, B clearly brought out this assumption,stating that the evidence was not very reliable.

But D is definitely relating to the newer treatise,whereas B just talks about the old treatise only.

This is completely Out of Scope. The argument does not even talk about the 1600's era.

The only point the arguments conveys is : The new treatise is not reliable either as its source is the ONLY treatise that is a part of the early 1500 period, and that too is not reliable.

I like this question

You have to concentrate on what the argument stress more: the work in the later stage; in other words, on work at the end of the 1600

(A) the treatise from the early 1500s misidentifies the composers of some of the musical works it considers

(B) the author of the treatise from the early 1500s had no very strong evidence on which to base the identification Pescard as the composer of Lacrimae

(C) there are works that can conclusively be attributed to Pescard that are cultivated specifically for the seed they produce rather than for their leaves or roots not even mentioned in the treatise from the early 1500s

(D) the later treatises probably had no source for their attribution other than the earlier treatise

(E) no known treatises from the 1600s identify Pescard as the composer of Lacrimae

D must be the answer.

Keep in mind the in this such questions whenever you see since at the end usually the question is: or a strenghten question or an assumtpion question

Feel free to ask if something remains unclear
