How lithography and serigraphy are sub-categories of graphic design?
Both lithography and serigraphy forms of design are used by modern artists (POP ARTISTS). If we discuss what is lithography and what is serigraphy then we can determine are sub-categories of graphic design or not!
What is lithography ?

What is serigraphy ?
serigraphy is actually a method where an image is moved with the help of forcing ink and the medium is silk or mesh. This is one kind of printing technique. so serigraphy is related to graphic design and it belongs to the sub-category of graphic design.

Graphic design is really debated by art critiques?
It’s true. Graphic design is really debated by art critiques. The designer or artist debated about it. Some of them (artists) is said that its a true art form and some artist are said that it’s not.
Actually graphic design is a vast area and this is the reason for creating the debate. Based on some of its categories, some artist said its a true art form where some artist or designer directly point out the term “True art” is not directly related to graphic design. whether who will won this debate is not the question! but the truth is graphic design is really debated by art critiques.

Which of the following is not true about graphic design -Typography?
Typography is actually using words for creating graphic design. Typography is not always significant for creating graphic design. If you’re a designer then you can easily understand that typography is not always required to design a graphic. However, typography is used most of the time in a design but it’s not a necessary part of a design.
There are lots of designs you’ll find where typography is not used so how can be it significant for creating a graphic! I think you understand what I’m expressing!
If the option ‘D’ only told that typography used in graphic design then we can consider it but it used the word ‘significant’ so we can’t consider it. If we really want to use the word ‘significant’ then we will rewrite the sentence and we will write “quality graphic which has its own expression and inner meaning that is significant for creating graphic design”.
So after discussing the question ” Which of the following is not true about graphic design” we have found our answer. we have found our option ‘D’ of ” Which of the following is not true about graphic design ” is wrong. so option D is will be the answer.
