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.
17. Which one of the following, if true, most strongly supports G┬б┬пs allegation of bias?
(A) If an artist has had one of his or her works exhibited in the Metropolitan Art Show, that artist has an advantage in getting commissions and selling works over artists who have never had a work exhibited in the show.
(B) The fee for entering photographs in the Metropolitan Art Show was $25 per work submitted, while the fee for each painting or sculpture submitted was $75.
(C) The committee that selected from the submitted works the ones to be exhibited in this year┬б┬пs Metropolitan Art Show had four members: one photographer, on sculptor, one painter, and one who works in all three media but is the least known of the four members.
(D) Reviews of this year┬б┬пs Metropolitan Art Show that appeared in major newspapers and magazines tended to give more coverage to the photographs in the show than to the sculptures and paintings that were exhibited.
(E) in previous years, it has often happened that more paintings or more sculptures were exhibited in the Metropolitan Art Show than photographs, even though the total number of works exhibited each year does not vary widely.
Even C comes close. If all the premises in the argument are true then the fact that there equal number of people representing all the catagories of art means they should select equal number of arts works from each catagory given equal number of qualifying art works submitted. Then again it is not mentioned how the art works are selected. C has this weak point because of the forth person involved.
I believe you folks didnt select B because it sounds too good right ?
I dont quite agree on D and E. They all have the weakness C has. We cannot prove bias beyond doubt using these facts. Silimarly B cannor prove. May be sculptures and paitings need more space/ maintainance and hence more entry fee.
I think D, media coverage, could be seen more as a consequence rather than a cause of there being less photographs. Because there were more photographs exhibited, therefore, media coverage was greater for it.
