Any idea which is the right one? and why?

In the course of her researches, a historian recently found two documents mentioning the same person, Erich Schnitzler. One, dated May 3, 1739, is a record of Schnitzler's arrest for peddling without a license. The second, undated, is a statement by Schnitzler asserting that he has been peddling off and on for 20 years. The facts above best support which of the following conclusions?
(A) Schnitzler started peddling around 1719. (B) Schnitzler was arrested repeatedly for peddling. (C) The undated document was written before 1765. (D) The arrest record was written after the undated document. (E) The arrest record provides better evidence that Schnitzler peddled than does the undated document.

They're all bad answers. This is not how the official GMAT will ask you to draw a conclusion; it's a bad question. Don't study it.

I go for C

A. If 1739 May 3 was his first day then this is not true
B. If the undated statement was made in connection with the arrest made in 1739 then this cannot be the conclusion
C. Since in the undated document says '20 years' and in 1739 he WAS arrested for peddling.. even if we consider that 1739 was his first time peddling...at the most the undated document could have been written in 1759, much less than 1765
D. The arrest record might be written before also.. because there is a gap of 20 years max
E. Both are equal evidence that Schnitzler used to peddle

The text can only support E.

Other choices are guesses. Shocked
