CLAT Practice Test - 7 - Question 1

Direction: Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions below. In this passage Ria and Gargi give their opinions about a new painting by Marcello Vasquez.

Ria
"The new painting is spectacular! It is certainly the best work ever completed by Marcello Vasquez. I like the new painting for several reasons. First the painting is large. It almost covers the entire wall! Second the painting is inexpensive. Normally a painting like this would cost thousands of dollars. But this painting costs less than $500. Third the painting is colourful. Red and green dominate the canvas peppered with bright spots of yellow."

Gargi
'The new painting is horrendous! Marcello Vasquez should be ashamed of his work. I haven't seen a painting this bad in a long time. I dislike the new painting for several reasons. First the painting is far too large. It almost covers the entire wall think small paintings are better than large ones. Second the painting is inexpensive. This tells me that Vasquez must have been unable to sell the painting for a higher price. Now he is desperate. As a result it appears he is trying to give the painting away. Third the painting is colourful. Although I usually like a painting to be colourful I strongly dislike the colours Vasquez uses. To put it plainly the combination of red green and yellow is ugly."
