2. Under the current standards that museums use when storing Renaissance oil paintings, those paintings do not deteriorate at all. --- do not at all is extreme;

3. Museum collections typically do not contain items that are more likely to be vulnerable to fluctuations in temperature and humidity than Renaissance oil paintings. ---- Reference to museum paintings in general is irrelevant to the discussions here.
4. None of the materials in Renaissance oil paintings other than the paint are vulnerable enough to relatively wide fluctuations in temperature and humidity to cause damage to the paintings. – We can easily assume this, since if the other items were vulnerable, then the paintings cannot stand. Remember the proverb that a chain is only as strong as the weakest link.

5. Most Renaissance oil paintings are stored in museums located in regions near the regions where the paintings were created.—Location of creation is not the concern.

Is answer choice "D" not an "Extreme" too?
- "None of the xyz"

Can we please stop using reasons to cancel one out when others have the same reason, but just happen to work.. ie. this AC is extreme so it's out.. and this AC is also extreme but it works

Good point, and eliminating choices for reasons like the fact that they are "extreme" is not the path to a high GMAT verbal score. We have to keep in mind that the GMAT an entrance exam for graduate school. So, it doesn't make sense that one could score high on it by using simple hacks such as eliminating extreme choices.
