This piece of pottery must surely date from the late Minoan

    This piece of pottery must surely date from the late Minoan period. The dress of the female figures, particularly the bare and emphasized breasts, and the activities of the people depicted-note especially the importance of the bull-are both highly suggestive of this period. These factors, when coupled with the black, semi-gloss glaze that results from firing the pot in a sealed kiln at a low temperature, makes the conclusion a virtual certainty.

    Which of the following is a basic assumption made by the author of this explanation?

    (A)Black, semigloss glazed pottery was made only during the late Minoan period.

    (B)The bull is an animal that was important to most ancient cultures.

    (C)Throughout the long history of theMinoan people, their artisans decorated pottery with seminude women and bulls.

    (D)By analyzing the style and materials of any work of art, an expert can pin-point the date of its creation.

    (E)There are key characteristics of works of art that can be shown to be typical of a particular period

    The Official Answer is E.

    Experts, how can I analyzed option by option and select the right choice? I would appreciate your help.
