Well here goes the reasoning...The condition is MM needs to have an abstract or else atleast a semi representational art work (from a US female) ; while MM needs a 20th Century artwork from an artist who doesnt belong to US or Europe (It includes France as per world map:) )

So Out of all the 5

1 <-- Apt for FA

2 <-- Apt for MM

Other options all violate the conditions...

Hope you understand
(Do Kudo)

Firstly, thanks Amkabdul for explaining the answers.

OA is
2 --> MM
4 --> FA
My reasoning behind choosing 1 for FA was because the questions says "preferably at least some art by US women" and the only women among the answer choice is the # 1. I just don't understand the reasoning what GMAT looks at.
For MM, did you ever consider option # 5, if yes then why did you not choose that option?

Kudos awarded.

Good one....
I also initially chose FA and MM but then realised that 1st option cannot be FA as it is sculpture and 'the FA's strengths are 20th century US painting, 20th century jewelry, and art from 14th century South America. ' Moreover option 3 and option 5 are also not possible for FA as both are non-US painting. Hope this helps.

What if a person doesn't know the countries from East Asia?
Or what if a person is not familiar with the diference between art and sculpture?

Honestly, this questions assumes too much from the pre-exisiting bias/knowledge of the test-taker. For me, Japan and Taiwan both are in East Asia And both 2 & 4 can be the answers for MM. Didn't really like the question. Such question shouldn't appear in actual EA​.​

Guys, how do you approach IR questions with a lot of information in them? Do you write notes while reading and then use those notes to look for the right answer?

Hi Sajjad1994 . Why "Semirepresentational painting by Yuan Chin-Taa (male, Taiwan, 20th c.)" is not a possible case for MM?

Dear thinhle

You are right; I have stuck on this answer too.

Prompt:
....MM's strengths are East Asian painting, 19th century European maintaining, and the 18th century US painting and sculpture; & other than European or US art.

Pursuant to the constraints there are two plausible contenders:
- Representational woodblock prints by Hashiguchi Goyo (male, Japan, 20th c.)
- Semirepresentational painting by Yuan Chin-Taa (male, Taiwan, 20th c.)

Yet, it cannot be the case because official explanation quoted:
For a work to meet MM’s requirements to be included in future exhibits, it must be a work of East Asian printmaking, a 19th-century European painting}

­Do not get stuck at this question! There is a typo. It should be 'MM's strenghts are East Asian PRINTMAKING'
