Dear dixitraghav,

C is my choice

A is out, because idiom is X rather than Y, where X and Y should be parallel, in chronological order rather than art movement - odd, since cronological order is not parallel with art movement.
B. is out because in chronological order rather than by art... , in ... and by.... - are not parallel
C. seems ok for me, its a bit awkward, but it is the best choice, (I would say "to organize the exhibit in chronological rather than [in - i am not sure here] art movement order".
D and E are out, because it comes that DECISION organized the exhibit, however it is assumed that curator did this.

gimme kudos ))

C, as explained by Pkit.

@Pkit : In C, We don't need art movement order..!!. "rather according to art movements" is OK

My pick is (B)

I think C is wordy.

B seems to be the right answer as is also discussed at the forums in beatthegmat.

order in chronological is the right idiom

@Pkit

the parallelism here is exhibit 'in chronological order'....rather than..[exhibit (implied)] by art movement

B is the best choice. C is wordy.

I'll go with B
the idiom X rather than Y.
X is chronological order, and the preposition is "in"
Y is art movement, and the preposition is "by" because you dont say "in art movement"
hence they are parallel

I would go for B for the reasons already mentioned.
And actually according to beatthegmat the OA is B

Could someone please post the OA? IMO, it is "C" since "b" does not conform to the rules of parallelism.

The correct answer is B. I fouund this question in beatthegmat forum. The explanation in that forum is as follows:
B is the correct choice.

A. to organize the exhibit in chronological order rather than art movement - Eliminate. Looks like the curator decided to do art movement.
B. to organize the exhibit in chronological order rather than by art movement - Correct by POE
C. to organize the exhibit according to chronological order rather than according to art movement - Eliminate."according to chronological" is wrong. The idiom is "in chronological order"
D. that organized the exhibit in chronological order rather than art movement - Eliminate. "that" suggests that decision organized the exhibitE. that organized the exhibit by chronological order rather than by art movement. Eliminate. "that" suggests that decision organized the exhibit .

If anyone post the question in the forum ,please post the OA by using spoiler .
