Those who feel that fewer and fewer people in this country have a genuine interest in the fine arts are absolutely correct. This is true despite the oft-mentioned record levels of attendance at art museums.

The argument above would be most strengthened if which of the following statements were true?

a) The increase in the number of people who visit art museums more than once has been greater than the increase in the number of visits to these museums.
b) An interest in the fine arts cannot be determined by examining levels of museum attendance.
c) A substantial and relatively consistent portion of the visitors to this country's art museums are, and always have been, international tourists.
d) Sales of art books have declined sharply.
e) Art museums in this country now display a much wider range of exhibits than was once the case.

IMO A

Conclusion: Those who feel that fewer and fewer people in this country have a genuine interest in the fine arts are absolutely correct.
Premise:This is true despite the of the-mentioned record levels of attendance at art museums.

Prethink: Even the record levels of attendance at art museums, it is no true representation of the actual increase in members visit to museum.


a) The increase in the number of people who visit art museums more than once has been greater than the increase in the number of visits to these museums.---same as prethink
b) An interest in the fine arts cannot be determined by examining levels of museum attendance.---irrelevant, not affecting conclusion
c) A substantial and relatively consistent portion of the visitors to this country's art museums are, and always have been, international tourists.---irrelevant
d) Sales of art books have declined sharply---irrelelvant
e) Art museums in this country now display a much wider range of exhibits than was once the case. ---irrelevant

Per me its C.

Option A says: the increase in number of people is greater than number of visits.

But here we do not know whether these people who are visiting are of the same country?

And if they are... How many are they? They might be 80%.

C says the attendance is more and it might be "substantially" due to foreigners.. and this does bolster the claim that interest in "this" country has fallen.

a) The increase in the number of people who visit art museums more than once has been greater than the increase in the number of visits to these museums. IMHO this wud the correct answer as it is attributing the increase in attendance to already interested people


b) An interest in the fine arts cannot be determined by examining levels of museum attendance.
c) A substantial and relatively consistent portion of the visitors to this country's art museums are, and always have been, international tourists.
d) Sales of art books have declined sharply.
e) Art museums in this country now display a much wider range of exhibits than was once the case.

No support has been given for this conclusion. But, there is a contradictory fact - oft-mentioned record levels of attendance at art museums.
The right choice will show that despite the contradictory fact, the genuine interest in the fine arts is indeed decreasing. In other words, it will explain the ambiguity.

a) The increase in the number of people who visit art museums more than once has been greater than the increase in the number of visits to these museums. Just what we want. The record levels of attendance is attributed to re-visits.
b) An interest in the fine arts cannot be determined by examining levels of museum attendance.Does not show whether the interest in fine arts is decreasing
c) A substantial and relatively consistent portion of the visitors to this country's art museums are, and always have been, international tourists.It does show that fine arts is more popular among foreigners but does not say anything about the decreasing interest among people of this country
d) Sales of art books have declined sharply.We are talking about fine arts and not general art. Also, this does not put any effort on explaining record levels of attendance at art museum
e) Art museums in this country now display a much wider range of exhibits than was once the case.Has nothing to do with public interest.

Though I fell in trap and chose C

But this my take on the analysis

c) A substantial and relatively consistent portion of the visitors to this country's art museums are, and always have been, international tourists.

So nothing has changed , international people visiting remains consistent
so does not explain decrease in interest vs visit number increase

a) The increase in the number of people who visit art museums more than once has been greater than the increase in the number of visits to these museums.
so yes as someone rightly mentioned
it explains the paradox in the argument
interest of people decreasing but if interested people visit more than once , the count of visitors increase
