A simple one I guess, however the question in this case is reversed...
Curator: The decision to restore the cloak of the central figure in Veroneseâ€™s painting from its present red to the green found underneath is fully justified. Reliable x-ray and chemical tests show that the red pigment was applied after the painting had been completed, and that the red paint was not mixed in Veroneseâ€™s workshop. Hence it appears likely that an artist other than Veronese tampered with Veroneseâ€™s painting after its completion.
Art critic: But in a copy of Veroneseâ€™s painting made shortly after Veronese died, the cloak is red. It is highly unlikely that a copyist would have made so major a change so soon after Veroneseâ€™s death.
The art criticâ€™s response to the curator would provide the strongest support for which one of the following conclusions?
(A) The copy of Veroneseâ€™s painting that was made soon after the painterâ€™s death is indistinguishable from the original.
(B) No painting should be restored before the painting is tested with technologically sophisticated equipment.
(C) The proposed restoration will fail to restore Veroneseâ€™s painting to the appearance it had at the end of the artistâ€™s lifetime.
(D) The value of an artistâ€™s work is not necessarily compromised when that work is tampered with by later artists.
(E) Veronese did not originally intend the central figureâ€™s cloak to be green.
How is E an "180"? Please justify. I read other forums as well, but to no avail. I understand that C is good, but E still can contend as strengthen choice. I could have discarded this choice once in a blue moon with keeping inference mindset(as this cant be clearly derivable from the available information), but being a strengthen question, I am still in dilemma.

If you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of anybody! Cowards do that and You're better than that! The path is long, but self-surrender makes it short; the way is difficult, but perfect trust makes it easy. Fire the final bullet only when you are constantly hitting the Bull's eye, till then KEEP PRACTICING. Failure establishes only this, that our determination to succeed was not strong enough. Getting defeated is just a temporary notion, giving it up is what makes it permanent.
