I simply don't understand the explanation for question 34, exam 2, passage 2. Can someone elaborate on the answer for me? I just don't understand why choice III is not also an answer.

You aren't alone. I scribbled, "it is literally in the same passage that justifies II!!!" in the margin beside my incorrect answer choice of II and III.

Taking a second look at it, it seems that the author wanted to emphasize the difference between a question that asks for specific evidence opposing a point and one that asks to choose which evidence was not presented in the passage.

It seems that the author of the question meant to make choice III something that was never mentioned in the passage, but must have let what they had just read seep into their thoughts or something.

I think that this is just an error on EK's part.
