"Can I answer this without guessing or -- God forbid -- resorting to Wikipedia?"
If the answer is no, then we're good to go. Let's get started...
(A). Yeah -- for whatever reason, the author tells us the time of the museum's opening
ceremony in lines 5-8.
Choice (A) is wrong.
Lines 66-67 tell us all about radiocarbon dating.
Choice (B) is a no-go.
Lines 54-56 will tell you exactly were these landmarks were first established, so (E) is off.
All you have to do to know that choice (C) is wrong is to take a glance at lines 28-30.
The museum does, in fact, discuss the effects of disease on American Indians, making (C)
wrong as well. If somebody asked us this question about Dena
Dincauze's <<din-causes>> contributions to the museum we'd get it totally wrong,
because neither passage talks about it.
Which makes choice (D) the right answer.
Sometimes wrong feels so right...
