­Newspaper editor: Published photojournalism must always present the events covered without distorting those events. Sometimes an image distorts the events a photojournalist attempts to capture, such as when the photojournalist has an equipment failure. In such cases, photojournalists are permitted to make minimal changes to an image, but only to the extent that (1) they are certain about what they observed, and (2) those changes reduce the distortion. Photojournalists' photos are often compelling works of art as well as documents of newsworthy events. However, for publication as journalism, a photo's aesthetic features are allowed to be considered only after the photo is shown to accurately portray relevant features of the event it depicts. In accordance with these criteria, in our journalistic coverage of Event E, we elected to publish photograph P1 rather than photograph P2.

Statement: Assuming the editor's statements are true, if ___1___, then it must be the case that ___2___.

The answer lies in the sentences

However, for publication as journalism, a photo's aesthetic features are allowed to be considered only after the photo is shown to accurately portray relevant features of the event it depicts. In accordance with these criteria, in our journalistic coverage of Event E, we elected to publish photograph P1 rather than photograph P2.

So, if P1 has been selected over P2 at least in part for its aesthetic features, then  this means that aesthetic played a role in deciding between P1 and P2. But we know that asthetic comes into play only when both portray relevant features of the even.

If the above has to be converted to If - then sentence, the selection on asthetic reasons means both portray relevant features.

1. P1 was chosen over P2 at least in part for its aesthetic features

2. Both P1 and P2 accurately portray the relevant features of Event E­

I often get confused about the order in which the statements should be placed. I thought that the first event happening had to appear first, so I switched the order of appearance. What else can I do to avoid this mistake in the future?

­It's a comprehension issue while reading either passage or question statement.

In this case, its the passage comprehension issue.

a photo's aesthetic features are allowed to be considered only after the photo is shown to accurately portray relevant features of the event it depicts.

A occurs only after B occurs.
meaning : If A occurs, B must have occured.

We are not given info the other way round.

KarishmaB can you kindly explain why the reverse statement is wrong?
If both P1 and P2 accurately portray the relevant features of Event E, then it must be the case that P1 was chosen over P2 at least in part for its aesthetic features

The last line of the paragraph says- "In accordance with these criteria, in our journalistic coverage of Event E, we elected to publish photograph P1 rather than photograph P2."

My reasoning was - If the required condition for both P1 and P2 to be considered is met, (and yet P1 was elected^) then it must be that P1 was elected for its aesthetics.­

Because "accuracy" is necessary before we consider aesthetics, not sufficient.

Given: However, for publication as journalism, a photo's aesthetic features are allowed to be considered only after the photo is shown to accurately portray relevant features of the event it depicts.

So "Only if accurate, then you can consider aesthetics."
This is not the same as "If accurate, then consider aesthetics." That shows a sufficient condition.
Hence the reverse is not correct.
