Conveying rhythm depends less on the artistic quality of the individual photographic images than on how the shots go together and the order in which they highlight different aspects of the action taking place in front of the camera.

If the statements above are true, which of the following must be true on the basis of them?

(A) The artistic quality of the individual photographic image is unimportant in movie photography.

(B) Photographers known for the superb artistic quality of their photographs are seldom effective as moviemakers.

(C) Having the ability to produce photographs of superb artistic quality does not in itself guarantee having the ability to be a good moviemaker.

(D) Movie photographers who are good at their jobs rarely give serious thought to the artistic quality of the photographs they take.

(E) To convey a scene’s rhythm effectively, a moviemaker must highlight many different aspects of the action taking place.

Everything can be elim but C and E.

I think id go for C, b/c E requires a lil bit more than the passage has. Maybe highliting different aspects are not always required to effectively convey rhythm. It probably helps majorly, but maybe not all the time.

C is much better, its def clear that having superb artistic value will not always gurantee great moviemaking skills.

C...

E just repeats what is given in the last sentence of the CR, The word 'many' makes it unsuitable.

I would say this is not a good question.
C says about moviemakers and the passage is about moviemaking.
E says about a MUST condition that is also not true.

So none of the choice seems correct to me..

C looks for of an inference answer choice than must be true answer choice.

E does repeat a portion of the argument and hence is necessarily true.

important point noted and highlighted

The most important aspect of moviemaking is conveying a scene’s rhythm. Conveying rhythm depends less on the artistic quality of the individual photographic images than on how the shots go together and the order in which they highlight different aspects of the action taking place in front of the camera.

If the statements above are true, which of the following must be true on the basis of them?

(A) The artistic quality of the individual photographic image is unimportant in movie photography.

not supported by stimilus AND out of scope
(B) Photographers known for the superb artistic quality of their photographs are seldom effective as moviemakers.

not supported by stimilus

(C) Having the ability to produce photographs of superb artistic quality does not in itself guarantee having the ability to be a good moviemaker.

the statement is supported by stimilus

(D) Movie photographers who are good at their jobs rarely give serious thought to the artistic quality of the photographs they take.

out of scope and not supported

(E) To convey a scene’s rhythm effectively, a moviemaker must highlight many different aspects of the action taking place.

Hi,
Exactly, I have the same reasoning as posted in this quote. And hence C.
But, some people say that it is a repetition and therefore not E. I feel, it's not E because 'Must' with only one condition of all other conditions(like order of scenes etc) has been mentioned.
I don't see the case of repetition to be a reason for elimination. Since it is of a 'must true' question type and not a 'conclusion' question type.
Am i right?
Can someone explain?

If the statements above are true, which of the following must be true on the basis of them?

(A) The artistic quality of the individual photographic image is unimportant in movie photography. => not relate

(B) Photographers known for the superb artistic quality of their photographs are seldom effective as moviemakers. => irrelevant

(D) Movie photographers who are good at their jobs rarely give serious thought to the artistic quality of the photographs they take. => quite out of scope

I feel C and E are contenders. Let's negate both of them.

(C) Having the ability to produce photographs of superb artistic quality guarantee having the ability to be a good moviemaker. => but lack of processing the shots together as well as highlight different aspect. I mean, the quality of movie not depend on this ability (produce photo... bla bla). So attack the argument. Yep, this correct answer

(E) To convey a scene’s rhythm effectively, a moviemaker have to or need (logical opposite) highlight many different aspects of the action taking place. => the same side with the argument. Do not attack
