Reading Comprehension: Inference Questions

The passage suggests which of the following about the locals who re-interred the mummy of Thutmose III?

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

This answer choice is not suggested in any way by the passage. The passage attributes the additional damage caused to the mummy to the locals' lack of experience in handling mummies, not to any ill intentions.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

The passage does not provide any information about the extent of the damage caused by the locals, so it cannot be compared to the damage caused by the tomb raiders.  

Very good!

[[snippet]]

The passage attributes the additional damage caused to the mummy to the locals' lack of experience in handling mummies. On this basis, it can be inferred that the damage caused to the mummy by the locals was accidental, an unfortunate byproduct of their inexperience.    

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

This answer choice contradicts information that is stated in the passage: the locals caused the secondary, not initial, damage to the body. The tomb raiders first damaged the body.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

This answer choice takes a step too far from the information provided in the passage. The passage refers to the tomb raiders and the locals as two different groups and provides no reason to believe they are the same people.

They deliberately damaged the mummy.
The damage they caused was not as bad as the damage that had been caused by the tomb raiders.
They did not necessarily mean to damage the mummy.
They caused the initial damage to the mummy.
They are, in fact, the same people who disinterred the mummy in the first place.
