While arts management programs and other similar courses are often seen as a requirement to be eligible for jobs such as museum curating, in fact they ought to be considered optional: a degree in management studies is by no means a necessary qualification for the understanding of art.

A. While arts management programs and other similar courses are often seen as a requirement to be eligible for jobs such as museum curating, in fact they ought to be considered optional: a degree in management studies is by no means a necessary qualification for the understanding of art.

B. Though arts management programs and other similar courses like them are often seen as a requirement to be eligible for jobs such as museum curating, they should in fact be considered optional, a degree in management studies is by no means a qualifying necessary qualification for the understanding of art.

C. A degree in management studies is by no means a necessary qualification for the understanding of art, thus arts management programs and other similar courses are often seen as a requirement to be eligible for jobs such as museum curating, but in fact they ought to be considered optional.

D. Though a degree in management studies is by no means a necessary qualification for the understanding of art, it should, in fact, be considered optional: arts management programs and other similar courses are often seen as a requirement to be eligible for jobs such as museum curating.

E. Arts management programs and other similar courses are often seen as a requirement to be eligible for jobs such as museum curating, but a degree in management studies is by no means a necessary qualification for the understanding of art: in fact, they ought to be considered optional.

A. While arts management programs and other similar courses are often seen as a requirement to be eligible for jobs such as museum curating, in fact they ought to be considered optional: a degree in management studies is by no means a necessary qualification for the understanding of art.
Correct. "while" means contrast here. "they" refers to "arts management programs". "a degree in management ... of art" is an example to support the previous clause.

B. Though arts management programs and other similar courses like them are often seen as a requirement to be eligible for jobs such as museum curating, they should in fact be considered optional, a degree in management studies is by no means a qualifying necessary qualification for the understanding of art.
"similar ... like ... " is redundant.

C. A degree in management studies is by no means a necessary qualification for the understanding of art, thus arts management programs and other similar courses are often seen as a requirement to be eligible for jobs such as museum curating, but in fact they ought to be considered optional.
This choice conveys illogic meaning. First clause means that management programs are unnecessary, but second clause, with conjunction "thus", means that management programs are required.

D. Though a degree in management studies is by no means a necessary qualification for the understanding of art, it should, in fact, be considered optional: arts management programs and other similar courses are often seen as a requirement to be eligible for jobs such as museum curating.
This choice conveys illogic meaning. "though" means a contrast, but "not necessary" and "optional" seem not to have contrast in meaning.

E. Arts management programs and other similar courses are often seen as a requirement to be eligible for jobs such as museum curating, but a degree in management studies is by no means a necessary qualification for the understanding of art: in fact, they ought to be considered optional.
"they" at the end of this sentence is ambiguous.

In fact, there are many articles about the function of colon in GMAT. My opinions, read those articles then you could learn more :-)

You could learn from RonPurewal here:

Took 3 Mins

D- seems to have one more issue -- it has ambiguous pronoun 'It' & hence sufficient to eliminate this option in comparison of 'A'

THEY here clearly refers to the art management programs and other similar courses.. why is it ambiguous?
They cannot refer to 'A degree in management studies'.

Also, how does one choose which is better for contrast... while or though.
I felt though makes the contrast clearer...

egmat Could you please help me with the solution? Thanks in advance!
