Hi Sprozes, thanks for the question!

For this question, we are trying to identify the answer choice that the information in the passage has answered.

Art Nouveau is only mentioned one time in the passage and this makes it easy to identify the relevant portion to examine. We should be looking at lines 13-17 to see if the passage provides information to answer the following question, "Were the artistic motifs of traditional lacquer work similar to those that were typical of Art Nouveau?"

These lines clearly tell us that the artistic motifs of traditional lacquer and Art Nouveau differed sharply. With this information, we can answer "no" to the question posed in answer choice C.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
