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 assertion that a later artist tampered with Veronese's painting serves which one of the following functions in the Veronese's argument?

(A) It is the main point toward which the argument as a whole is directed.
(B) It is a subsidiary conclusion that supports the argument's main conclusion.
(C) It is a clarification of a key term of the argument.
(D) It is a particular instance of the general position to be defended.
(E) It is a reiteration of the main point that is made for the sake of emphasis.

It is the main point that the argument revolves around. Hence, I will go for A.

B.
the main conclusion/point is justification of change from red to green.
the art critic however, only disagrees about the fact that any other artist other than Veronese would have tampered with the painting.

I would go for C.
The first statement ends with "Hence", and it presents the reason behind why it is justifiable to change the color of cloak to its original color.So C is most suitable, it clarifies the main point.

This is a good test of your ability to identify what the real conclusion/main point is. But it IS an LSAT question, not a GMAT. In the GMAT, the "bolded statement" question type is the most similar to these LSAT "role of a statement" questions.

OA is B:

argument's main conclusion: restore the cloak from its present red to the green is fully justified
subsidiary conclusion: Hence it appears likely that an artist other than Veronese tampered with Veronese's painting
