the best way to rewrite sentence For and here the

00:26

potential answers A real art All caps that classical paintings

00:34

All right well release uses sarcasm when describing classical representational

00:40

art as really art missed it the first time though

00:44

Yeah we did too The trouble with the original sentences

00:47

that this sarcasm is well just not totally clear Unlike

00:51

our fine working schmuck where it hits over the head

00:53

with a hammer The main idea of this paper is

00:55

that abstract art is just a cz legit as representational

00:59

art at least things that a smear of paint on

01:02

a canvas is as good as a painting that's painstakingly

01:05

01:37

Point is that most people think that classical painting is

01:39

the only kind of art that's real But this sense

01:42

is trying to convince us otherwise Well guess what choice

01:45

see is the correct answer It keeps the meaning of

01:47

the original sentence but manages to give us the correct

01:50

kind of emphasis on the term riel art Putting the

01:54

phrase real art in quotation marks shows sarcasm allowing at

01:57

least to get across the idea that she doesn't agree

02:00

with what most people think Way should be good as

02:03

long as we don't go too crazy with quotation marks

02:06

they was their significance If we'll use too often and

02:09

here's looking at you fans of air quotes rather tears 00:02:13.558 --> [endTime] or something you know
