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’s 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’s 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’s 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.

This, I think D

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’s 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 --> irrelevant
(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 --> this weakens G's argument. Because the fee for each painting or sculpture is too high to be compared with that of each photograph, it maybe the reason why artists who have their works are painting or sculpture are more reluctant to submit their works than are artists who have their works are photographs, not because of the bias as G alleged. One more reason is that this is about bias in submitting works, not about bias in exhibiting works as mentioned in G's argument
(C) The committee that selected from the submitted works the ones to be exhibited in this year’s 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 --> this fact shows that no bias exists, because the proportion of the major field of members in the committee are equal
(D) Reviews of this year’s 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 -->clearly strengthens the bias G alleged. More photograph are viewed in magazine and newspaper than are sculpture and paintings in the exhibition
(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 --> weaken

B

B strengthens G's argument by saying that it is cheaper for photographs to be submitted so there are more photographs in the show. I think D is wrong because it says what the newspaper covered, not what was actually displayed at the show

I got with B as well, though I don't really like it. Major assumption that money is a factor.

Exactly what I am wondering! Where in the passage can you show me is the clue for money as assumption? And that is why I am misleading to E.

Thanks.

I don't think E is right either. How does showing more paintings/sculptures in previous years lead to bias now that more photographs are shown now?

late but choose B. which assumes that money be the trouble.
Should focus on conclusion: The group of works exhibited in this year’s Metropolitan Art Show reveals a bias in favor of photographers.

It's B for me too.

Yes option B says \$25 per work but one can only submit work from one medium. From this if one had three qualifying works of each medium, he would tend to submit his photographic one as the fee is the least.

B is rightly showing bias towards the photographer...
