It is widely assumed that a museum is helped financially when a generous patron donates a potential exhibit. In truth, however, donated objects require storage space, which is not free, and routine conservation, which is rather expensive. Therefore, such gifts exacerbate rather than lighten the demands made on a museum’s financial resources.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the argument above?

(A) To keep patrons well disposed, a museum will find it advisable to put
at least some donated objects on exhibit rather than merely in torage.

(B) The people who are most likely to donate valuable objects to
museum are also the people who are most likely to make cash gifts to it…

(C) A museum cannot save money by resorting to cheap storage under
less than adequate conditions because so doing would drive up the
cost of conservation.

(D) Patrons expect a museum to keep donated objects in is possession rather than to raise cash by selling them.

(E) Objects donated by a patron to a museum are often of such importance that the museum would be obliged to add them to its collection through purchase if necessary

the answer is (E), but why not (B)?
thank you

HI...

The Conclusion says : '' museums are burdened by the gifts ''


B says '' people who gift also gift cash''


E : the potential xhibit is so necessary that sometimes the museums need to purchase''

B partly helps us feel that although the gifts burden the museum the cash MIGHT lessen the burden...this goes half-way in beating the conclusion for who knows if THE gifted cash is enough to make up for the financial problem

whereas E goes on to say that the ''gifts'' are so important that they NEED TO be bought with their own ( museum's) money if necessary...

this shows that the ''gifts'' are not exactly a financial burden...

hope that helps !

Have fun :)
