Zachary: The term “fresco” refers to paint that has been applied to wet plaster. Once dried, a fresco indelibly preserves the paint that a painter has applied in this way. Unfortunately, additions known to have been made by later painters have obscured the original fresco work done by Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel. Therefore, in order to restore Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel paintings to the appearance that Michelangelo intended them to have, everything except the original fresco work must be stripped away.

Stephen: But it was extremely common for painters of Michelangelo’s era to add painted details to their own fresco work after the frescos had dried.

Stephen’s response to Zachary proceeds by

(A) calling into question an assumption on which Zachary’s conclusion depends
(B) challenging the definition of a key term in Zachary reaches
(C) drawing a conclusion other than the one that Zachary reaches
(D) denying the truth of one of the stated premises of Zachary’s argument
(E) demonstrating that Zachary’s conclusion is not consistent with the premises he uses to support it

Hi,
lets rephrase the Para..
Zachary: The paintings of Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel have been retouched by others by using colours over original. So the layers on top of 'fresco' should be scrapped to get originality.
Stephen: painters in that era also used to add details after fresco..


lets check the choices..

(A) calling into question an assumption on which Zachary’s conclusion depends
correct.. Z's assumption is that those details were no added by michelangelo, Stephen states a premise/known fact that Q the assumption

(B) challenging the definition of a key term in Zachary reaches
definition of FRESCO is not contested , and we do not talk of any other definition

(C) drawing a conclusion other than the one that Zachary reaches
Stephens response is not a conclusion

(D) denying the truth of one of the stated premises of Zachary’s argument
stephen is not straightway rejecting/denying the premise/assumption. he is giving another view that is Q the premise

(E) demonstrating that Zachary’s conclusion is not consistent with the premises he uses to support it
S does not check on consistency and never speaks on the issues

IMO - D

Zachary: The term “fresco” refers to paint that has been applied to wet plaster. Once dried, a fresco indelibly preserves the paint that a painter has applied in this way. Unfortunately, additions known to have been made by later painters have obscured the original fresco work done by Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel.

Stephen: But it was extremely common for painters of Michelangelo’s era to add painted details to their own fresco work after the frescos had dried.

From highlighted part we can conclude Stephen is denying with Zachary

Clear option A. Stephen counters Zachary's argument by questioning his assumption that removing other painters' additions will leave us with Michelangelo's original work. It won't because Angelo himself might have created multiple versions, which cannot be separated out to reach the original.
