An artist must suffer for his art say these successful entrepreneurs who attempt to pass themselves off as artists. They auction off to the highest bidder, usually a fool in his own right, the most mediocre of drawings; and then, from their well-laid tables, they have the unmitigated gall to imply that they themselves.

Choose the answer that best completes the passages.

(A) are connoisseurs of art

(B) suffer deprivation for the sake of their work

(C) are artists

(D) know art better than the art critics do

(E) do not enjoy a good meal

An artist must suffer for his art

And in an attempt to be regarded as artists, the successful entrepreneurs show their "suffering" by auctioning off their (mediocre) drawings to the highest bidder (as if out of financial urge) and then appear to be immersed in bitterness, resentment. The purpose is to show the pain they undergo for the sake of making art, just like what artists do. So (B).

just share my thinking and welcome all corrections for my improvement!
