There are already more great artworks in the world than any human being could appreciate in a lifetime, works capable of satisfying virtually any taste imaginable. Thus, contemporary artists, all of whom believe that their works enable many people to feel more aesthetically fulfilled than they otherwise could, are mistaken.

The argument is most vulnerable to criticism on the grounds that it

A. overlooks the possibility that not all contemporary artists believe that their works enable many people to feel more aesthetically fulfilled than they otherwise could

B. presumes, without providing justification, that most human beings are inclined to take the time to appreciate many great artworks

C. presumes, without providing justification, that the value of an artwork depends on the degree to which human beings appreciate it

D. overlooks the possibility that the work of at least one contemporary artist is appreciated by many people whose access to the great majority of other artworks is severely restricted

E. presumes, without providing justification, that the number and variety of great artworks already in the world affects the amount of aesthetic fulfillment derivable from any contemporary artwork

A. This answer contradicts the stimulus. The author clearly said all artists believe their work can help people find aesthetic fulfillment.

B. The author didn’t say that people will find aesthetic fulfillment. The author said they could.

C. The author never talked about what makes an artwork valuable.

D. CORRECT. This is enough to prove the argument wrong. The author said all artists are wrong. So even one artist who provides aesthetic fulfillment disproves the author. (The idea is that not everyone has access to great art, even if in theory there is more than enough art out there.)

E. This is the most tempting wrong answer. The author didn’t say that contemporary works can’t be fulfilling. Instead, the author said that contemporary works can’t increase the potential for fulfillment we already have. We’re already at our max potential for fulfillment due to the massive quantity of existing artworks.
