Many people praise High Renaissance painting for creating very realistic images from observation, but scholars have documented that some High Renaissance painters used pinhole cameras to project the likeness of their subjects onto the canvas and painted from there. Thus, people who credit High Renaissance painters with superior artistic skills are misguided. Painting from a projected image requires only an insignificant amount of additional skill beyond that needed to copy a picture outright.

In the argument given, the two boldfaced portions play which of the following roles?


(A) The first is a finding that has been used to support a conclusion that the argument rejects; the second is a claim that supports that conclusion.

(B) The first is a finding that has been used to support a conclusion that the argument rejects; the second is that conclusion.

(C) The first is a claim put forth to support a conclusion that the argument rejects; the second is a consideration that is introduced to counter the force of that evidence.

(D) The first is evidence that forms the basis for the position that the argument seeks to establish; the second is a claim presented to solidify that position.

(E) The first is evidence that forms the basis for the position that the argument seeks to establish; the second is that position.

Many people praise High Renaissance painting for creating very realistic images from observation - Fact
BF1: scholars have documented that some High Renaissance painters used pinhole cameras to project the likeness of their subjects onto the canvas and painted from there - Evidence - Goes against the previous statement and supports the conclusion
Thus, people who credit High Renaissance painters with superior artistic skills are misguided - Conclusion - Based on the evidence of BF1
BF2: Painting from a projected image requires only an insignificant amount of additional skill beyond that needed to copy a picture outright - Claim - Supports Conclusion and BF1

What is the difference between option D and E?
As far as i know that claim stands for "conclusion".
Here BF2 is nothing but a premise supporting the claim : "Thus, people who credit High Renaissance painters with superior artistic skills are misguided."
So Answer should be E?
Please let me know the flaw in my reasoning?

Thanks,
Ankit

Main conclusion: People who credit High Renaissance painters with superior artistic skills are misguided --> This is the position taken in the argument.
BF2 is not the main conclusion. Rather, BF2 adds value to the conclusion. So option E is out.

In my understanding, the position this argument wants to hold is the conclusion, that the people who praise are misguided. Is it a thumb rule that the position that author wants to take is always the conclusion?
