I went with D. Im assuming that is incorrect B/C the passage states that women for sure only were involved in certain topics while the question says they assume, which they wouldn't have to here?

I assume E is not the answer due to it being that being an observation by current people not the people of the past observing themselves as being that way?

In P1, the sentence " However, since the early 1970s, folklore studies have begun to regard folk performers as people of creativity..." implies that the people of the past did not share this belief. This points to answer A.

Not sure if I am correct here so any confirmation would be appreciated!

For the money we are paying for this service, sure would be nice for someone to clarify within 5 months.
