(A) It, unlike the other photographs of John, showed him in the style of dress he and his friends usually wear rather than the formal clothes he wore at the ceremony.
- I'll go with (A). Their difference lies in the interpretation of the word 'resemble'. To john's friends, he looked different (formal dressing) but to John, there is resemblence because his looks has not changed

(B) It was the only photograph taken of John at his wedding for which the photographer had used a flash.
- out of scope

(C) It was a black-and-white photograph, whereas the other photographs that showed John were mostly color photographs.
- out of scope

(D) It was unique in showing Johnâ€™s face eflected in a mirror, the photographer having taken the photograph over Johnâ€™s shoulder.
- Can't explain the difference

(E) It was one of only a few taken at the wedding that showed no one but John.
- Out of scope too

(A) it is

Why can't D be answer ?

Being unique doesn't mean you don't resemble your normal self or your original looks. These are really the issue that John and his friends don't agree at - that is, the meaning of 'resemblence'

i think it is C
[purely technical, but they say that black and white pictures emphasize different aspects of a person when compared to a color picture]
A is not right in my opinion because it seems to say that the one picture in which he wore normal (regular) clothes, his friends said it didnt look like him (assumingly when compared to him in formal clothes)
shouldnt his friends be more likely to think that picture, with A's given criteria, would look more like J and not unlike him?

Rupstar, the difference between a black and a white photo was not stated in the main passage. You can't import knowledge and apply them to your answers. The GMAT doesn't allow that. CR and RC passages are written in such a way you do not need to be an expert in any field to answer the questions. All questions should be answered, based on what you're told in the passage.

In my opinion, (A) is not wrong. John interpretes resemblence as 'looking similar' while his friends interpretes resemblence as 'not looking like your normal self'. John might dress shabily whenever he meets up with his friends, and so when he dresses formally for his wedding, he might look different in the eyes of his friends.

I'll stick with (A).

it's gotta be "D"........the phrase by John that "this is the only one that resembles him" shows that there is no ambiguity here as the reflection of a person can't lie abt one's identity, it has to match that person i.e. has to resemble him no matter how many ppl disagree that the photo doesn't resemble him.

Agree with D..

Logic: his friends don't think it is Jhon's because the features could have got laterally reversed (left became right and right became left

Disagreement: Friends think the picture doesn't resemble him. John said that it is the only one that resemble him.

I'm choosing D. John only seems himself on the mirror. The pictures of him are the same views that his friends see, but the picture of his mirror image is what he sees.

It is D for me. John probably always sees himself that way, as he mostly sees himself in the mirror!
