­I saw this one on Focus Exam 5.

@JJ.jj, @mysterymanrog, could we tag this one as "GMAT Prep (Focus)"?

­In the conclusion, the author emphasises on "the omission of the Great Wall strongly suggests that Marco Polo never did actually travel to China" - while, the correct option doesn't address that. Because, the relativse of MarcoPolo - those who travelled to China could have talked about the Great Wall - Infact would most probably have talked about it, as it was one of the greatest structures of those times. So, if his realtives visisted china, they would have seen it and talked about it.
Hence, the Option B doesn't sound correct.

(Altough, that's the option I picked as none of the other options synched with the question.)
