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 Veronese’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 Veronese’s workshop. Hence it appears likely that an artist other than Veronese tampered with Veronese’s painting after its completion.

Art critic: But in a copy of Veronese’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 Veronese’s death.

The art critic’s response to the curator would provide the strongest support for which one of the following conclusions?


(A) The copy of Veronese’s painting that was made soon after the painter’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 Veronese’s painting to the appearance it had at the end of the artist’s lifetime.
(D) The value of an artist’s work is not necessarily compromised when that work is tampered with by later artists.
(E) Veronese did not originally intend the central figure’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. F1, F1, Help GMATClubbers...... :oops:

Press +1 Kudos, if you think my post gave u a tiny tip.

Hi,

I can help here.

Have a think of this time line:

1) Painted
2) Veronese lived a bit longer
3) Veronese died

The key word in E is:
Veronese did not originally intend the central figure’s cloak to be green.

If you think about the timeline, what could have happened is Veronese painted it green, changed his mind and then painted it red before he died.

That makes perfect sense with both accounts (that the paint was added later AND that the copies had red).

C however can not make sense in any way.
