Hi @filozinni,

Happy to help!

Answer choice (B) is supported in numerous places throughout the passage: lines 33 to 38; lines 41 to 45; and lines 48 to 55.

We know that using these old techniques can result in widely variable outcomes as they are subject to uncertainty and unpredictability and will sometimes have stains and imperfections. In this way, artists using these old techniques relinquish the control which modern technology allows over the creation of their work.

While the artists lose this control, they can still produce the aesthetic effects they desire. Estabrook uses these methods to "foster the illusion of antiquity" and "heighten the sense of nostalgia." In this way, it is this loss of control which allows Estabrook to achieve his desired aesthetic.

Hope this is helpful! Please let us know if you have any further questions.
