Every year, thousands of students graduate from fine art programs conducted by schools all over the country. Most art galleries and museums, however, only lend about 1% of their exhibit space to unknown contemporary artists. It is clear that a successful career as an artist is more like a fantasy than a possible achievement.

Which of the following, if true, casts the most doubt on the argument's conclusion?


A) Fine art programs have always been popular because they offer students a true opportunity to express themselves.

B) Although some art galleries are government institutions, many are private companies that operate in a similar way to ordinary retailers.

C) The development of the Internet, and communications technology in general, has created a constant need for talented artists of all kinds.

D) Last year, 61% of people under the age of 30 who filed for unemployment benefits had degrees in the fine arts.

E) Because today's art market is a global one, individual artists must compete with thousands of others from all over the world, if they are to become successful.

Thousands of students graduate from fine art programs.

It is clear that a successful career as an artist is very difficult.

casts the most doubt on the argument's conclusion?

A) Fine art programs have always been popular because they offer students a true opportunity to express themselves.
(art program popularity and expressing opportunity does not guarantee or destroy a successful career.OFS)
B) Although some art galleries are government institutions, many are private companies that operate in a similar way to ordinary retailers.
(We have no idea what ordinary retailers does to the art students.)
C) The development of the Internet, and communications technology in general, has created a constant need for talented artists of all kinds.
(need here indicates the requirement thereby giving a successful career and hence weakens the concln)
D) Last year, 61% of people under the age of 30 who filed for unemployment benefits had degrees in the fine arts.
(Past scenario need not repeat. This does not give any info.)
E) Because today's art market is a global one, individual artists must compete with thousands of others from all over the world, if they are to become successful.
(This can be true but does offer anything to the conclusion. strengthens if not anything else)
