this question needs further discussion i came up with A.
Pls elaborate on solution

The first phrase (includes the conclusion) of this argument says "WHEN TEACHING ART STUDENTS ABOUT THE USE OF THE COLOR, teachers should use colored paper rather than paint in their demonstrations."

The following phrase (MORE PREMISES) says "Colored paper is preferable because it readily permits a repeated use of exactly the same color in different compositions, which allows for a precise comparison of that color’s impact in varying contexts," which says why colored paper is preferable, but we don't know yet why it's useful WHEN TEACHING ART STUDENTS...

The next phrase (MORE PREMISES) continues "With paint, however, it is difficult to mix exactly the same color twice, and the varying textures of the applied paint can interfere with the pure effect of the color itself," which says nothing about WHEN TEACHING ART STUDENTS...

As we can see, there is a gap, between the conclusion and the premises, that we can close. Therefore we need a SUPPORTER from the answer choices that relates the premises to the conclusion.

Then D fits perfectly.

I hope you find it useful.

Question :Assumption
Type : Different words

When teaching art students about the use of color, teachers should use colored paper rather than paint in their demonstrations. Colored paper is preferable because it readily permits a repeated use of exactly the same color in different compositions, which allows for a precise comparison of that color’s impact in varying contexts. With paint, however, it is difficult to mix exactly the same color twice, and the varying textures of the applied paint can interfere with the pure effect of the color itself.

Understand :
Premise : CP = repeated use of sam color in diff comps= preise comparison of that color's impact in varying contexts
Premise : Paint= same color twice diffic = varying texture =screw all
Premise : CP > Paint
Conclusion : teaching art student about the use of color, use CP ather than paint

Think :
In the entire argument we were talking about the reason why CP is prefeable to paint...we talked baout the impact CP and paint would have and how th pure effect can be jeopardized . ALl great stuff !! CP is boss !!
BUT the conclusion is about the "use of color" .... are we given any info that understand the impact of colors is a MUST to understand the "use of color"?? DO NOT assume use YOUR KNOWLEGDE and readily assue that this has to be true !!! UNLESS we are given an explicit link how do we know??
This is what's called "different words " : premise talks about different stuff (impact) ..conclusion talks about different stuff (use)
Which one of the following is an assumption required by the argument?

(A) Two pieces of paper of exactly the same color will have the same effect in a given context, even if they are of different textures.
- extra info !!! This asn choice tries to strengthen the CP premise !! we were talking about vaired contexts..this is providing extra info about "same context" ...You might think that if Paint is greater in same context then the preferability does not hold !! and this answer choice tries to negate any objection regarding "given contet" and s you may think "okay this seals the gap " ....BUT BUT BUT why on earth do i need to care about this if teaching the "use of color" has no need of understanding different compos??? This would be a strengthener BUT not an assumption !! It would be an assumption if we were igiven a direct link bteween "use of color" and " impact of color"

(B) A slight difference in the color of two pieces of paper is more difficult to notice than a similar difference in the color of two samples of paint.
- OUT OF SCOPE

(C) Changing light conditions have less of an effect on the apparent color of a piece of paper than on the apparent color of a sample of paint.
- OUT OF SCOPE

Quote:
(D) Observing the impacts of colors across varying contexts helps students to learn about the use of color.
- direct link !! impact CP>impact P = impact helps "use" = conclusion use CP

(E) It is important that art students understand how the effects of using colored paper in various compositions differ from those of using paint in those compositions.
- This answer choice talks about comparative effects cp and paint would have !!! BUT we want to know "is it useful to understand "use of color" ?
