E} The dwellings had roofs of poles and arrowweed that are supported by posts. The dwellings might have had other attributes - walls, floors etc. But we are talking only about the roofs. A} The dwellings were nothing but roofs (open sided - no walls). The dwelling known as shades is nothing but a roof of poles and arrowweed supported by posts set in a rectangle. Hope the explanation makes sense. I would have chosen E during the test if this Q had come ! Amit, What is the source of this Q?
