Which of the flowing 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

Can someone explain what the argument?

The later treatises are not credible because their source is the early 1500's single treatise, which itself was apparently unreliable

Conclusion of this passage is "These newly discovered treatises lend no support to the attribution of
Lacrimae to Pescard". So this question is basically strengthening/weakening question.

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
If later treaties are also referring to same old book that means there is no other source other than the one main thing. So this is the most logical thing.

E. no known treatises from the 1600’s identify Pescard as the composer of Lacrimae
We are bothered about treaties other than present one's.

straight D.
By making the later treatises reference the one produced in the early 1500's , D maintains the status quo ( that the treatise from the early 1500 does not provide evidence that Pescard composed Lacrimae).
