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, one 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.

Equal number of photographers, sculptors and painters entered the show but the fees for photographs was kept at $25 and fees for sculptures and paintings was kept at $75. This created a bias amongst the artists to enter photographs as the respective fees is one third of the other allowed mediums.

Group of work exhibited showed bias - it's hard to understand how charging less is bias towards the work exhibited. There was an equal number of submission from each category submitted but more of photographs selected. Charging more fee for submission is not the same as selecting the ones to exhibit.

Charging less is correct in that it is biased towards photographs but that is only for submission of the work and not the selection.

Thought option D made sense, it tells us photographs get more coverage therefore that gives us a reason why more of photographs were chosen from an equal number of submission.

Have I gone wrong somewhere?

D shows bias by Newspapers , not by the exhibition people . Moreover , consider the premise - Equal number of photographers , artists and sculptors entered . Inorder to ensure that all have equal opportunity , everyone must have equal chance to enter . BY raising fee for other categories , exhibition maintained bias

What does past have to do with the present ? This kind of logic is a classic fallacy in GMAT
