Directions: Identify the choice that best completes the statement or answers the question.

Read the passage.

People have been forging art for thousands of years. There was an entire industry based on forged Greek sculptures in 1st century Rome. In 1945, Hans Meegeren admitted to forging a number of Vermeers, including a very famous one called the The Last Supper. All the experts were shocked: they were convinced it was real and would never have known if Mr. Meegeren hadn’t owned up. Something similar happened in 2018 to paintings that even had Sotheby’s (the great London Auction House) and the Louvre (the famous Paris gallery) fooled. Experts can test the pigments in paints, and the age of the canvas or board, but the more modern a painting is, the smaller the differences are. In any case, forgers are now capable of re-using old canvases and reproducing paints with the same chemical signatures as old ones. To try and combat the flood of fakes coming onto the art market, instead of testing miniscule flakes of paint, researchers at Rutgers University in New Jersey, are working on an entirely different approach. Instead of looking at what the painting is made from, a digital camera and a powerful computer analyzes how it’s made. It looks at the thousands tiny brush strokes. Their shape and direction is like a fingerprint. Once the artificial intelligence builds up enough genuine samples of an artist’s work, it should be able to spot a fake within seconds.
