The correct answer is letter A. Adolf Hitler before becoming the Adolf Hitler in our history books, dreamed of becoming a professional artist. He took the entrance exam in Academy of Fine Arts Vienna where his application was denied twice in 1907 and 1908.
He passed in his 1907 preliminary entrance examination but rejected on the second portion for the portfolio with a theme of Biblical or iconic scenes he passed contained too few heads. The institute noted that he had some talent in architecture more than in painting and suggested he should apply to the institute’s School of Architecture. He did not pursue it as it required him to take secondary school which he did not want.
