I've read some of the comments and answers above, but I am still quite confused. Firstly, as someone else already mentioned, Answer D specifically says In ancient Greece (and not in ancient Greek plays) so I'm not sure how we can derive any knowledge about Ancient Greece.
Secondly, the answer choice says that "In ancient Greece people did not read SILENTLY to themselves" The stimulus tells us that although he did not read the words on the tablet out loud, he also did not read silently because he was making comments about what he was reading ie. what we can assume to be "wow, awesome etc."
Thus, it's unclear to me how we can be sure that "In ancient Greece, people did not read SILENTLY to themselves" if we know nothing about ancient Greece and if Demosthenes was not actually silent as he read.
