I strongly feel 23 should be B. Look at the following statements:
" The old questions “What happened?” and “How did it happen?” have given way to the question “Why did it happen?” Prominent among the methods used to answer the question “Why” is psychoanalysis, and its use has given rise to psychohistory."

So "what happened" and "How did it happen?” are clearly conventions governing traditional history.

Kudos to anyone who proves me wrong.

Someone explain Q23. It is given that "Psychohistory does not merely use psychological explanations in historical contexts. Historians have always used such explanations when they were appropriate and when there was sufficient evidence for them". From this we can clearly answer the question in option (c), "When do traditional historians consider psychological explanations of historical developments appropriate?". They find it appropriate when there is sufficient evidence for them.

The question is asking when, as to the time frame when the conventions were established.

Hello,

Can somebody explain why the answer to Q23 cannot be C given the below lines?
Psychohistory does not merely use psychological explanations in historical contexts. Historians have always used such explanations when they were appropriate and when there was sufficient evidence for them.

Thanks.
