(A) Unobtrusive architecture is both inviting and functional. [Inviting and functional for what? – eliminate it]
(B) Modern architects who let their strong personalities take over their work produce buildings that are not unobtrusive. [Hold it]
(C) An architect with a strong personality cannot produce buildings that functional well for the public. [Too extreme – eliminate it]
(D) A work of architecture that takes second place to the environment functions well for public use. [never know - may be enviornment friendly but too expesive - eliminate it]
(E) A work of architecture cannot simultaneously express its architect’s personality and be functional for public use.[Irrelevant – eliminate it]
D is too generic
