What is the sentence talking about when they say "for any subsequent account offered is similarly not immune to such charges." What charges? Because I don't quite understand the second part of the sentence I have a hard time picking a choice as well.

The claim that the account in question is corrupted by disinformation, is the charge.


This is a rather awkwardly stated question, but "not immune to" simply means that any other claim could also be subject to disinformation. MY condolence to people taking aptitude test.

  • I know right. :( It's for grad school.
