BOOKMARKED
As part of a joint process two museums - Museo metropolitano (MM) and the Fundacion arte (FA)- have decided to require that exhitbits at each museum be directly connected to the strenghts of their permanent collections. MM's strngths are East Asian painiting, 19th century European paintaining, and the 18th century US painting and sculpture; the FA's strengths are 20th century US painting, 20th century jewelry, and art from 14th century South America.

In addition, MM's next exhibit must be devoted to something other than European or US art and be restricted to the 20th century. FA's exhibit must be devoted to art that is abstract, or at least art that is not fully representational (e.g. semi-abstract or semi representational) preferably including at least some art by US women.

For each of the two museums, select a work that could be included in that museum's next exhibit without violating any of its requirement for exhibits. Make only two selections in each column.

1. Large abstract sculpture by Louise Nevelson (female, US 20th C.) [MM or FA]
2. Representational woodblock prints by Hashiguchi Goyo (male, Japan, 20th C.) [MM or FA]
3. Semi representational painting by Paul Cezanne (male, France, 19th C.) [MM or FA]
4. Semi abstract, semi representational art Nouveau jewelry by Rene Lalique (male, France 20th C) [MM or FA]
5. Semi Representational painting by Yuan Chin-Taa (male, Taiwan, 20th C) [MM or FA]

Well here goes the reasoning...The condition is MM needs to have an abstract or else atleast a semi representational art work (from a US female) ; while MM needs a 20th Century artwork from an artist who doesnt belong to US or Europe (It includes France as per world map:) )

So Out of all the 5

1 <-- Apt for FA

2 <-- Apt for MM

Other options all violate the conditions...

Hope you understand

I suppose you meant FA for the highlighted portion, right?

Firstly, thanks Amkabdul for explaining the answers.

OA is
2 --> MM
4 --> FA
My reasoning behind choosing 1 for FA was because the questions says "preferably at least some art by US women" and the only women among the answer choice is the # 1. I just don't understand the reasoning what GMAT looks at.
For MM, did you ever consider option # 5, if yes then why did you not choose that option?

Kudos awarded.

Good one....
I also initially chose FA and MM but then realised that 1st option cannot be FA as it is sculpture and 'the FA's strengths are 20th century US painting, 20th century jewelry, and art from 14th century South America. ' Moreover option 3 and option 5 are also not possible for FA as both are non-US painting. Hope this helps.
