The author of the passage most probably discusses the case of the mummy of Thutmose III in the second paragraph in order to
This answer choice quotes information from the passage rather than focuses on the function of this detail. The case of Thutmose III is an example, so the author includes this case not for the sake of 'proving' anything about the mummy, but to exemplify her or his point about tomb raiding.
The second paragraph does not warn others of the dangers of tomb raiding but provides an example of this problem.
The Thutmose III case shows, in detail, the damage tomb raiders caused to an ancient tomb; this illustrates or exemplifies the problem tomb raiding causes to archaeologists or historians wishing to study the contents of those tombs.
While it is true that the third paragraph presents tomb raiding as having certain scientific value, the case of the mummy of Thutmose III presents tomb raiding as a neither positive nor valuable phenomenon. Quite the contrary, it highlights the setbacks tomb raiding causes archaeologists.
The second paragraph describes a single case of tomb raiding. The case chosen is a well-known one. If the author wanted to emphasize the full scale or scope of the problem, he or she would probably describe more than just one case or provide statistics.
