Thanks for the question, bli2016, and sorry we took so long to reply. In this question, the author's gave us a very specific line reference - we are supposed to look at the critics mentioned in line 13. Those are the critics that were embarrassed in 1945 to discover that the painting they had so admired was in fact a forgery. The implication is that they then took the painting down (because it hung "until" 1945). That's the relationship we want to mirror in our answer - a group of people that discover that something is not what they thought it was, and change their view of what they had previously admired.
The critic who did not change his mind is mentioned in line 14, so that's not who we want to compare to in our answer. One additional clue that that's the wrong critic is that the question refers to critics, plural, not critic, singular.
Answer E has nobody discovering anything to be other than what they thought, and nobody changes their mind. They liked something for some reason, and that doesn't change.
Answer C has folks praising the food until they discover that it wasn't prepared by the master chef. The implication of "until" is that they then stopped praising it, changing their opinion of it because of this new information. That's the closest match to our embarrassed critics.
I hope that helps!
