shanna: Owners of any work of art, simply by virtue of ownership, ethically have the right to destroy that artwork if they find morally or aesthetically distasteful, or if caring for it becomes inconvenient.

jorge: Ownership of unique artworks, unlike ownership of other kinds of objects, carries the moral right to possess but not to destroy. A unique work of art with aesthetic or historical value belongs to posterity and so must be preserved. whatever the personal wishes of its legal owner.

25. On the basis of their statements, Shanna and Jorge are committed to disagreeing about the truth of which one of the following statements?

(A) Anyone who owns a portrait presenting his or her father in an unflattering light would for that reason alone be ethically justified in destroying it.

(B) People who own aesthetically valuable works of art have no moral obligation to make then available for public viewing.

(C) Valuable paintings by well-known artists are seldom intentionally damaged or destroyed by their owners.

(D) If a piece of sculpture is not unique, its owner has no ethical obligation to preserve it if doing so proves burdensome.

(E) It is legally permissible for a unique and historically valuable mural to be destroyed by its owner if he or she tires of it.

D for me. A is close but confining to only one particular situation. D applies for all art that's not unique and burdensome.

I feel A should be the answer.

Because Jorge talks about only unique artwork. If the artwork is not unique he will agree with shanna.

1 min & D. E is very close but E mentions legal aspect not ethical aspect so I take D.
