Negative effect --- worthlessness
Visitors’ opinions of themselves --- one’s own
7. 题干：D they feel their personal reactionis of no significance.

Give their opinions --- express their views
13. 题干：NOT GIVEN Reproductions of fine art should only be sold to the public if they are of high quality.
原文：If appropriate works of fine are could be rendered permanently accessible to the public by means of high-fidelity reproductions, as literature and music already are, the public may feel somewhat less in awe of them.
