DISCUSSION: On this type of question, you’ll literally be able to point to lines which answer the question in the answer choice. Don’t work hard to try to help make a wrong answer right by interpreting it weirdly. Instead, use the passage to confirm your choice.
- The passage doesn’t say. It’s only reference on this point is in line 11, saying that lacquer was “then little known in Europe.”
- The passage never mentions wood types.
- CORRECT. Lines 15-17 give us the answer to this: Art Nouveau and Lacquer were not similar.
- This is an interesting question, but the passage never addresses it. (The answer is probably yes, since Gray was holistic. But the passage doesn’t give us a direct answer.)
- Not mentioned. We don’t know why she used tubular steel, for example. And with lacquer, wood was more or less the only choice – so that’s not really a choice at all.
