Explanation

Prices for vintage prints drastically increased or sky-rocketed in the 1990s. Someone before or after would take advantage of this to gain money. So the question of forgery prints is foolish, because the are NOT indeed real vintage.

A, D and G are the correct answers

Discrepancy : an instance of difference or inconsistency

Ambiguity: an unclear, indefinite, or equivocal word, expression, meaning, etc.

So you take advantage of the blurry situation to spoil it and make profit, because people are not sure which is which.

Hope this helps.

regards
