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.

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.

I doubt the OA. IMO it should be E
[Reveal] Spoiler: OA

The statement in the argument states that there were an equal no of photographers, sculptors, and painters. So IMO B contradicts the argument.

Yep..I agree with Rohit... The stimulus clearly states " Equal numbers of photographers, sculptors, and painters submitted works that met the traditional criteria for the show".. this doesnt look right unless submitting the art articles is followed by the paying up for entering the Metropolitan Art Show. Then it would make sense ...

would rule out E too because
"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" ---- so this means that it could very well be that this year the number of photographs is the highest and hence a bias may not be the reason..

We can also rule out the other choices.. the question is ugly

hey sid/rohit
equal nos of photographers, sculptors, and painters submitted works that met the traditional criteria for the show suggest that the total no of works were submitted for audition.

make a note of the point that limited works picked from the audition were exhibited (not all)

I think you're inferring quite a bit. The statement from H explicitly states that if a work of art met the criteria it was displayed. The people running the event didn't have a pre-screening of all the works that met the criteria and then displayed only a portion of them. In affect, I think you're inserting an event (pre-screening) into the scenario and that would more than likely be beyond the scope of the question.

I think it is a clear B, since the fee of 25 bucks over 75 clearly shows bias favoring photographs.
