(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.

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?

My Explanation:
--------------------
(A) The artistic quality of the individual photographic image is unimportant in movie photography. ---> I can't say whether moviemaking and movies photography are similar terms; they don't look like. Even if they are, this option goes to an extreme in saying that artistic quality of the individual photographic image is unimportant. It just may not be as important as conveying a scene’s rhythm.

(B) Photographers known for the superb artistic quality of their photographs are seldom effective as moviemakers. ---> We cannot say this for sure. 'seldom' is the problematic word here. One can counter this statement by saying that photographers having superb artistic quality are generally good at moviemaking too.

(C) Having the ability to produce photographs of superb artistic quality does not in itself guarantee having the ability to be a good moviemaker. ---> This looks good to me. You need to possess other qualities too (for ex., conveying a scene’s rhythm effectively) for becoming a good moviemaker. Though the excerpt talks about 'aspects of moviemaking' and not about 'qualities of a good moviemaker', this looks like something that can be true based on the info provided.

(D) Movie photographers who are good at their jobs rarely give serious thought to the artistic quality of the photographs they take. ---> Again, this statement takes an extreme stand by stating that moviemakers 'rarely' give serious thought to the artistic quality of the photographs they take. They may not be as interested in the artistic quality of the images as they are in conveying a scene's rhythm.

(E) To convey a scene’s rhythm effectively, a moviemaker must highlight many different aspects of the action taking place. ---> The excerpt emphasizes about the 'order' in which different aspects are highlighted. This option also looks wrong because the excerpt talks about 'highlighting different aspects' NOT 'highlighting many different aspects'.
--------------------

I will go with option C.

"Effectively" and "must" are two strong words that omit E as a choice. I agree with C.

Hmm, I was down to C & E as the rest are way out.

I ruled out C because its not about the abilities of MM vs PG.

The stimulus starts with the aspects of movie making and conclusion should focus on the same and not go astray

I will go with "C" as well. "Many" in choice E is something that makes this choice less likely.

I went with C, but I think wouldn't have been surprised if E was the answer. What is the source of this question? Hopefully, not the OG?

I would go with C. It was down to C & E for me. E seemed like it had too many extreme words in it to be correct - effectively, must, many.

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. --> the premise just say less important but it doesnt mean that it is unimportant.
(B) Photographers known for the superb artistic quality of their photographs are seldom effective as moviemakers. --> we never know. the argument didnt say anything about correlation between artistic quality and effective moviemaker (or existence of ability to effectively put the shoot together and in right order which leade to effective moviemaker)
(C) Having the ability to produce photographs of superb artistic quality does not in itself guarantee having the ability to be a good moviemaker. --> correct because good moviemaking depends less on the artistic Q, therefore, no guarantee.
(D) Movie photographers who are good at their jobs rarely give serious thought to the artistic quality of the photographs they take. -->serious thought (never been explicitly mention from the argument)
(E) To convey a scene’s rhythm effectively, a moviemaker must highlight many different aspects of the action taking place. --> I think it is not to highlight but to pay attention on the order "the order in which they highlight different aspects of the action taking place in front of the camera"

Take away: most important=conveying a scene's rhythm. /Conclusion: conveving rhythm depends < on artistic quality, > on how the shoot goes together and order of different aspects of action.
My ans is C because of above reasons

E is very general in nature. The passage has given comparison to show how one aspect is more imp. than other for effective movie making.

So C is correct choice.

The most important aspect of moviemaking =a scene’s rhythm. Conveying rhythm >artistic quality of the individual photographic images.

Hence C which agrees with above calculation [:)]
