PT 49 Section 4 No. 16

Postby mz253 » Sat May 15, 2010 10:42 am

I have some problem with A.

I feel the correct answer should be the "best" artwork are the "most beautiful" artworks. but why the correct answer is the "most beautiful" artwork is the "best" artwork?

Thanks

Haven't you answered your own question? What is your problem with A if you think the correct answer is "..the "best" artwork are the "most beautiful" artworks." ?

Thanks for answering both of my questions!

well, my prephrased correct answer is A is B, but answer choice A says B is A. A is B and B is A is not equivalent, right?

I think A is perfect, and even if you weren't 100% convinced by A you could get there by eliminating B-E

Argument states:

There is a difference between beauty and truth, because if there weren't then the most realistic (and therefore truthful) art would be the best, and this is often not the case.

For this argument to work it would need say that while the most realistic/truthful art is often not the best art, the most beautiful art IS the best art, which is exactly what A states.

Does that help?
