It is due to a misunderstanding that most modern sculpture is monochromatic.When ancient sculptures were exhumed years ago, they were discovered to be uncolored. No one at the time had reason to believe, as we now do, that the sculptures had originally been colorfully painted, but that centuries of exposure to moisture washed away the paint.

Which one of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?

(A) The natural beauty of the materials out of which modern sculptures are made plays a part in their effect.

(B) Modern sculpture has been influenced by beliefs about ancient sculpture.

(C) Ancient sculptures were more susceptible to moisture damage than are modern sculptures.

(D) Some ancient paintings known to early archaeologists depicted sculptures.

(E) As modern sculptors come to believe that ancient sculpture was painted, they will begin to create polychromatic works.

conclusion :It is due to a misunderstanding that most modern sculpture is monochromatic--why so/what misunderstanding
Premise:
no body believes that ancient sculpture was colorful--so people believe that ancient sculptures were monochromatic.--so if modern sculptures are following ancient standard then there is a misunderstanding because ancient sculptures were originally colorful,and modern artist are following wrong convention.

B it is ...
