Part of the sentence with option E :

that the technique degrades major works of art , likening it to putting lipstick on a Greek statue .

meaning : techniques degrades the major works of art and technique links itself to putting the lipstick on a Greek statue . ------------- makes no sense at all .

Hello Deepak, you are right that this is indeed very confusing.

You have mentioned this is an "official guide" question. Can you let me know which version of "official guide" this is from. I have 13 th edition of official guide and could not find it there. Basically I wanted to know what is the official description of the choices.

Thanks Deepak.

I looked at the description of answer choices, and OG doesn't really provide any further details.

I am already having a tough time in Verbal and these kind of questions further scare me...

'which' modifies the word or phrase just before the comma. In the statements above, it incorrectly modifies 'major works of art' in options A,B and C.

In D, the 'The Greek statue with lipstick' is compared to the technique - an incorrect comparison. Hence, D is eliminated.

However, in E, the technique is correctly compared with the process of putting lipstick on the statue. E is the answer

The colorization of black-and-white films by computers is defended by those who own the film rights, for the process can mean increased revenues for them; many others in the film industry, however, contend that the technique degrades major works of art, which they liken to putting lipstick on a Greek statue.

(A) which they liken to putting lipstick on a Greek statue

(B) which they liken to a Greek statue with lipstick put on it

(C) which they liken to lipstick put on a Greek statue

(D) likening it to a Greek statue with lipstick put on it

(E) likening it to putting lipstick on a Greek statue





which cannot modify the preceding noun here, it does not make sens; we could use in which in these situations

between d and e e is better in meaning

official answer

Choice E, the best answer, correctly and logically compares "the technique" of colorization to the act of "putting lipstick on a Greek statue". In A, B, and C, the relative pronoun "which" refers not to "the technique" but to the noun phrase immediately preceding it, "major works of art". As a result, these works are compared to "putting lipstick on".. in A, to "a Greek statue" in B, and to "lipstick" in C. Choice D corrects this problem by eliminating the "which" construction and supplying the pronoun "it", thus referring clearly to "the technique", but it illogically compares "the technique" to "a Greek statue"
