Help on PT 46, sec 2, No. 5

Postby Alexander Wang » Sun Jan 29, 2012 10:36 pm

Why is choice A right?
My understanding is Patrons support artists because artists are not againt social order which is supported by patrons too.
Choice A means Patrons won't support artists who are against social order supported by patron.
How could it strength the conclusion? Somebody won't support you because you are again him can lend any strength to that he will support you if you are not against him. He maybe also won't support you even if you are not against him.
This choice seems an irrelevant choice.
Anyone can help me understand that?
Thanks in advance.

Try pre-phrasing the answer.

Premises:
Artists depend on certain individuals to create art.
Those individuals support the establishment.
Conclusion:
Art, in large, does not buckle the establishment.

What do you think is a plausible explanation?

Thanks.
I thought the first sentence was a conclusion. How dumb I am!
