Robinson: Wexell says that the museum wasted its money in purchasing [#permalink]

Robinson: Wexell says that the museum wasted its money in purchasing props and costumes from famous stage productions, because such items have no artistic significance outside the context of a performance. But many of the props and costumes are too old and fragile for use in a performance. So clearly, the museum did not waste its money, for displaying these items is the only way of making them available to the public.

The reasoning in Robinson's argument is most vulnerable to criticism on the grounds that it

(A) offers anecdotal evidence insufficient to support a general claim

(B) gives reasons that do not address the point made in Wexell's argument

(C) attacks the person making the argument rather than the substance of the argument

(D) concludes that a claim is false merely on the grounds that the evidence for it is insufficient

(E) takes a condition that is sufficient for the conclusion to be true as one that is necessary for the conclusion to be true


W : Accuses museum of wasting money as the props and costumes purchased has no artistic value except performance, amy are too old for performance.
R : The museum did not waste its money, for displaying these items is the only way of making them available to the public.

Check carefully R doesn't provide any justification for his conclusion neither does he attack W's argument, hence only (B) fits in correctly....
