17) C

The argument made in the text: “By keeping these treasures at the British Museum..safety is ensured for the whole world”. It also gives the example of the Standard of Ur and how it would have gotten stolen if it were not kept in the British Museum. 

A – Wrong
Although this may be true, it does not find a flaw in the statement that keeping artefacts in Britain instead of their home country ensures safety to the whole world. 

B – Wrong
Although this may be true, it does not find a flaw in the statement that keeping artefacts in Britain instead of their home country ensures safety to the whole world. 

C – Correct
The text assumes that giving an example of one country means that the same thing will happen to artefacts of other countries too. 

D – Wrong
This is irrelevant as the argument is related to the safety of the artefacts and not who will get to see them. 

E – Wrong
The argument is not about the safety of the British Museum. It is about the safety of the artefacts if they were returned to their home countries.
