Hi Paul,

I am not sure if I am allowed to participate. If I am not then excuse me for the first time.

(A) makes it look like view was sold
(B) which - refers to Rhon - hence it is wrong
(D) same error as (A) plus dreaded "being"
(E) makes it look like either the view or the "The Bridge of Trinquetaille"
was second highest price.

eliminate A since antecedent of it unclear
eliminate B, E since painting wasn't second highest price
elminate D because being makes no sense

choose C cause clear and concise. and 2nd highest price clearly refers to 20.2 million
