Question Stats:

35% (01:32) correct 64% (01:17) wrong based on 31 sessions
Serious individual art collectors are usually discreet when making significant purchases or sales related to their collections. At art auctions, for example, these collectors often place anonymous bids for major artwork. Therefore, the whereabouts of most of the world’s most valuable artwork are probably unknown.

Each of the following, if true, would weaken the conclusion above EXCEPT:

(A) The value of a piece of art is purely subjective.
(B) Serious art collectors usually publicize their new artwork several months after making a purchase.
(C) Museums own the vast majority of the world’s most valuable artwork.
(D) Of all the individuals in the world who own extremely valuable artwork, only a few are considered serious art collectors.
(E) The private collections of most serious individual art collectors are often displayed in public settings.

Pretty straight CR.

Your correct answer is the only one you do not infer or is explicitly stated in the passage

Serious individual art collectors are usually discreet when making significant purchases or sales related to their collections. At art auctions, for example, these collectors often place anonymous bids for major artwork. Therefore, the whereabouts of most of the world’s most valuable artwork are probably unknown.

(A) The value of a piece of art is purely subjective.

Correct. The value of the pieces of art is not mentioned anywhere in the passage

(B) Serious art collectors usually publicize their new artwork several months after making a purchase.

Wrong

(C) Museums own the vast majority of the world’s most valuable artwork.

We do know where the pieces of art are located. Wrong

(D) Of all the individuals in the world who own extremely valuable artwork, only a few are considered serious art collectors.

Wrong

(E) The private collections of most serious individual art collectors are often displayed in public settings.

Wrong

Hope this helps.

Ask for further assistance if you do need.
