FL 4, CARS, Q33

Postby NS_Tutor_Katelyn » Sun Aug 12, 2018 2:16 pm

A student asked us: "In the passage, it clearly states that he painted in oils, which is the new method he was one of the first welcome, rather than fresco. From this sentence, can't I assume that he preferred to paint in oils because he did paint in oils, and not fresco?"

The mistake here is that the passage never says that he painted in oils rather than fresco. All it says is that he painted The Last Supper specifically using oils. We have no basis to assume that this reflects a general preference of oils over fresco. Be wary of assumptions, especially on the CARS section. They often lead to wrong answers.
