Which statement best explains why Samuel Pepys's diary became popular? His style of writing was unusual and unique. His writing was very informal and comical. He recorded public and historical events with much candor. He almost always used codes and preferred shorthand. He recorded his personal life in very minute detail.

    Pepys began his diary on 1 January 1660. It is written in a form of shorthand, with names in longhand. It ranges from private remarks, including revelations of infidelity - to detailed observations of events in 17th century England - such as the plague of 1665, the Great Fire of London and Charles II's coronation - and some of the key figures of the era, including Sir Christopher Wren and Sir Isaac Newton. Fear of losing his eyesight prompted Pepys to stop writing the diary in 1669. He never actually went blind.

    C could also be right but if you read the articles about him, they don't bring up him writing with much candor as much as they bring up his short handed and coded style of writing. Ive had this question awhile back, its D
