According to Mercy Amba Oduyoye in Daughters of Anowa: African Women and Patriarchy, the women of the Asante people of Ghana participated in war as nurses or as providers of supplies, but only those who had not yet reached or who were past childbearing age did so. If such women died in battle, they died “as individuals and not as potential sources of human 5 life.” As such, many old women engaged in valiant acts, sometimes sacrificing their own lives, to defend those they had given life to.

Which of the following can be inferred from the passage?

(A) The deaths of Asante women of childbearing age were lamented more than were the deaths of other women.

(B) Older Asante women were more courageous than younger Asante women.

(C) Some of those who worked as nurses or as providers of supplies died in battle.

(D) Old women were accorded special status above other women and men.

(E) Men could not be considered potential sources of human life.

[Reveal] Spoiler: OE
The passage states that some women went to war to nurse others or to provide supplies and that “such women,” including many old women, died in battle. Therefore, it can be inferred that “some of those who worked as nurses or in providing supplies died in battle,” which makes choice (C) correct. Regarding choice (A), the passage does not address how people lamented the deaths of anyone who died in battle. The passage also does not address the courageousness of younger women, choice (B), or the status of men in Asante culture, choices (D) and (E).

Choice C

This is only that totally agrees with the passage. All other point assume more than what is there in the passage.
