Conclusion: Museums would be rash to relax those standards.
Premise: since results of preliminary tests indicate that gesso, a compound routinely used by Renaissance artists to help paint adhere to the canvas, is unable to withstand significant variations in humidity.

Bold 1: paint is the most sensitive substance in these works
Bold 2: museums can reduce energy costs without risking damage to these paintings

Bold 1 and 2 appear before premise and conclusion. Hence both are counterpoints.

Option D is correct:-
(D) The first is a judgment that has been offered in support of the position that the argument calls into question; the second is that position.

If, as some museum directors believe, paint is the most sensitive substance in these works, then by relaxing the standards for temperature and humidity control, museums can reduce energy costs without risking damage to these paintings.

"If" indicates that this whole CLAIM(BF1~BF2) is set as the opposite side to the argument; BF2 is an assumption base on BF1.
So it comes to the answer.
