Nineteenth century art critics judged art by the realism of its method of representation. It was assumed that the realistic method developed from primitive beginnings to the perfection of formal realism. It is one of the permanent gains of the aesthetic revolution of the twentieth century that we are rid of this type of aesthetics.

(A) It deemphasized realistic representation as an evaluative consideration for judging works of art.
(B) It permitted modern critics to appreciate the simplicity of primitive art.
(C) It repudiated the realistic representation found in the art of the past
(D) It reinforced traditional ways of looking and judging great art
(E) It allowed art critics to understand the evolution and nature of art.

From the last sentence, you can infer that the 20th century got rid of "this type of aesthetics" (judging work of art by its realistic representation).

(A) which is about "deemphasizing" realistic representation renders itself equivalent to the above interpretation.

Between A & C, I pick A.
Repudiate seems too strong.

One of the most hardest question that we can find on the GMAT and what makes it hard is the vocabulary...

OA is A

B- No mention about Modern critics --- Out of the Scope

C- weaken the argument

D- traditional ways , Out of the Scope

E- could be an assumption but not a conclusion.....

Only A mentions that the 20th century revolution is different than 19th century one ...
