I was able to eliminate all the answer choices that were unsupported and choose (D). But I was wondering, would this answer be acceptable if this were a MUST BE TRUE question, not a MOST STRONGLY SUPPORTED question?

PS. Would answers (A) (B) and (C) be broad generalizations made from the statements on premodern general theories?

Yes, (D) would still be the right answer if they changed the stem here. With (A), (B), and (C), there are problems with each one that knock them out so I wouldn't say they are broad generalizations that are true (they are broad generalizations, just not ones supported by the statements above).
