G: The group of works exhibited in this year’s Metropolitan Art Show reveals a bias in favor of photographers. Equal numbers of photographers, sculptors, and painters submitted works that met the traditional criteria for the show, yet more photographs were exhibited than either sculptures or paintings. As you know, each artist was allowed to submit work in one medium only.

H: How could there have been bias? All submitted works that met the traditional criteria—and only those works—were exhibited in the show.

If both G’s assertions and H’s assertion are true, which one of the following must also be true?

(A) More photographers than sculptors or painters submitted works to be considered for exhibition in the Metropolitan Art Show.
(B) All the works submitted for the Metropolitan Art Show met the traditional criteria for the show.
(C) The quality of photographs exhibited in the metropolitan Art Show was inferior to the quality of the sculptures or paintings exhibited.
(D) Some of the photographs submitted for the Metropolitan Art Show did not meet the traditional criteria for the show.
(E) More works that met the traditional criteria for the Metropolitan Art Show were submitted by photographers than by sculptors or painters

Hi Expert,

How is "A" different from "E"?

I chose "A" and I am unable to differentiate between "A" and "E".

Hi,

If you carefully read H's assertion he says it's necessary for the all artwork submitted must meet the traditional criteria—and only those works—would be exhibited in the show.

E specifies this fact.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Wanted to clarify one thing. G say "Equal numbers of photographers, sculptors, and painters submitted works that met the traditional criteria for the show," The question stem says that both H and G assertion are true. Isn't E contradicting G's statement

A - is a could be true answer -
2nd guy states that ALL ITEMS THAT ARE SUBMITTED AND MET THE CRITERIA ARE DISPLAYED.
according to A = if more photographers have given but very few met the criteria ?

E - states clearly . as we are not worried about no of photographers but no pf photographs met criteria for display .

+kudos if this helped you

Hi everyone. I got a little confused when I tried to identify the type of this question. I stayed between an assumption and a paradox question. Wich one of them is the type of this question? Or neither of them?

we can have same number of each artist . but each artist can submit many representations meeting the criteria in his field. therefore E is correct.

It is neither of these two types. This is a must be true question as it clearly asks to point out which of the answers "Must be True" IF THE CLAIMS BY BOTH ARE TRUE.

Now I got the catch of this argument.

The number of PH,SC and PA is same. Ok.
But more photos than sculpture and painting.
No biasing.

Means more photos meeting the traditional criteria.
E goes along with above logic.
