Explanation

The clue is that first the paintings were installed with no consideration to the arrangement and then they were actually arranged in alphabetical order. The blank comes after the trigger word but and agrees with the first description. So, the missing word must mean something like disorganized grouping.

Choices (C) and (E) are similar in meaning, but do not pertain to a disorganized group; they can be eliminated. The paintings do not have anything to do with water or the beach, so you can eliminate choice (B). Choice (F) is also irrelevant to the meaning you need. Choices (A) and (D) fit within the context of the sentence and both refer to a random grouping of items.

Hence options A and D are correct!
