Reading Comprehension: Detail Questions

According to the passage, which of the following recounted the damage caused to the mummy of Thutmose III?

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

Emile Brugsch's name is mentioned in conjunction with the damage the mummy had suffered, but there is nothing to indicate that he reported it to anyone. Someone else found the body and reported the damage before Brugsch.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

Although Hatshepsut is mentioned in the second paragraph, which discusses the mummy of Thutmose III, she is not referred to as someone who recounted the damage done to the mummy. Her name is only mentioned as a part of a place name - the Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

Although a group of locals is mentioned in the second paragraph, which discusses the mummy of Thutmose III, it is not said to have recounted the damage done to the mummy. The locals are the ones who reinterred the mummy, causing it more damage.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

Thutmose III is mentioned in the second paragraph because it discusses his mummy; not his possession of a mummy, but his own embalmed and mummified body. Since he is dead, Thutmose III, of course, could not have recounted the damage done to him or his corpse.

Excellent!

[[snippet]]

The words recalled that mean Gaston Maspero was the one who reported the damage done to the mummy.

Hatshepsut
Archaeologist Gaston Maspero
A group of locals
Thutmose III himself
Egyptologist Emile Brugsch
