Question 24: A. German scientists analyzing the 3300-year-old bust have found evidence suggesting that a royal sculptor at the time may have smoothed creases around the mouth and fixed a bumpy nose to depict the 'Beauty of the Nile' in a better light.

B. The new rendering at the entrance of the Egyptian city of Samalut attempts to re-create the strangeness of the Amarna style. That is probably best done in a museum instead of on a highway, where it might scare people.

C. The miracle of the Nefertiti bust in Berlin is that it combines the realism of the Amarna style, as it is known, with a feel for grace and harmony to create one of the world’s great icons of beauty.

D. By getting the colossally awful sculpture of the ancient queen pulled down, Egyptians have shown the way forward. We need to topple art that’s an insult to our public spaces.

Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Elimination:

Sentence C talks of the Nefertiti bust in Berlin being ‘one of the world’s great icons of beauty’. We can see that sentence A too talks of this sculpture, and evidence found to suggest that the sculptor might have made adjustments to depict the ‘Beauty of the Nile’ in better light.

Now sentence B and D seem to form a unit, both referring to a new rendering i.e. a replica at the entrance of the Egyptian city of Samalut, which is "colossally awful" and "might scare people".

While neither sentence B nor D fits with A and C to form a cogent unit, we can see that CBD does form a logical sequence. Sentence C talks of the Nefertiti bust in Berlin made in the Amarna style. Sentence B talks of a new rendering that attempts, unsuccessfully, to re-create this style. Sentence D talks of this ugly replica being pulled down by Egyptians as the ‘way forward’ to ‘topple art that’s an insult to our public spaces’.

The question is " Choose the Sentence that does not fit in "

Hence, the answer is Sentence A

Choice A is the correct answer.
