Because high gold content was reported, Elizabeth I funded two mining expeditions. Neither expedition found any gold there. Modern analysis of the island’s soil indicates a very low gold content. Thus the methods used to determine the gold content of Frobisher’s samples must have been inaccurate. Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends? A. The gold content of the soil on Kodlunarn Island is much lower today than it was in the sixteenth century. B. The two mining expeditions funded by Elizabeth I did not mine the same part of Kodlunarn Island. C.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
