Solution

The correct option is B

Artifacts that would have been displayed in public places will be sold to private collectors.


The author begins the third paragraph by saying “you might object…” in order to anticipate possible objections to the adoption of his proposal. In the next sentence, the author asserts that “ancient artifacts…should be available for all to appreciate, not sold to the highest bidder”, acknowledging an opponent’s fear that individuals might be allowed to purchase objects that ought to be displayed in public institutions. This objection is paraphrased in the answer choice.
