Explanation: The question asks about the image of a quipu, which was an Incan device for record keeping and bureaucratic function. Therefore, eliminate answer choices that do not involve bureaucracy or record keeping. Choice (A) does, so keep it. Choices (B) and (C) do not fit this description, so eliminate them. Choice (D) does discuss administration, but bureaucracies are not usually feudal in nature. Choice (A) is stronger than (D), so eliminate (D) and choose (A).
