Question

Rare is the artist who can suffuse his work with so much ambiguity and still intrigue. The known career of Stanley Kubrick encompasses an acknowledged AC movie features, one withdrawn movie feature, several short documentaries, and a myriad number of photo spreads. Controversy surrounded many of these projects. On a surface level, Kubrick seemed willing to alienate the audience for his desired effects. Yet the constant control and manipulation of all things surrounding his work also freed it up to interpretation. One knows, for the most part, that one is watching a Kubrick movie – its authorship is clear. _______________________.


Your Answer
A
Our speculation is further encouraged by Kubrick’s secrecy surrounding both his life and his film projects – a state of control that remains fairly unparalleled among most popular artists.
Correct Answer
B
Easy speculation follows the interpretation, but it is more of a challenge to dig beneath the popular veneer and debate the actual man and his deeper meanings
Your Answer
C
His is a career shrouded in myth and frustrating mystery
Your Answer
D
Yet we must persevere and try to understand what little we can of this particular artist’s story, even though it may demand a precision and incisiveness that no single writing can attain.
Your Answer
E
It may not be entirely correct to call Kubrick a child prodigy

Solution

The correct option is B Easy speculation follows the interpretation, but it is more of a challenge to dig beneath the popular veneer and debate the actual man and his deeper meanings

 Option (b)

The paragraph has spoken about what happens on a surface level. So, logically, digging below the surface would follow. Also, the paragraph ends with ‘interpretation’ and ‘watching Kubrick’s movie’. Option (b) extends this with what happens next - ‘speculation’ following ‘interpretation’. (a) abruptly jumps to the first person. (c), (d) and (e) talk about ‘Kubrick’ himself – but do not extend the idea effectively at the end of the paragraph.
