My answer is B, the first is the conclusion. The 2nd used to support that conclusion.

I think punzo' approach is a good guide to solve this kind of question.
you should set different parts (from premises to intermediate conclusions to final conclusion) in order.
Any order that makes sense is the valid order.

IMO, it is waste to try to guess what is the conclusion of the argument because there can be multiple conclusions possible depending on to what piece of info one gives importance. So never try to conclude yourself before reading answer choices.

For this reason, I think following should help:

--> Read the whole argument and get the author's voice.
--> Read answer choices; try to connect statements in question as per the answer choice. Whatever connection makes sense, that is the answer.

Seems like it is B.
As the first bold sentence is for sure a conclusion. Only answer B states this fact, other than that, Guys does anyone know how to tackle such questions. I do not get the answers!!! Help

B for me too. My strategy with questions such as this is that I break down the argument into parts - premises, sub-conclusion/s to main conclusion.

[b]

(1) MAIN CONCLUSION: "but in this case it is clearly not justified" - Eliminate A, C, D and E
(2) "Burton's case indicates no such thing" is supported by "the increase in inventory is entirely attributable to products that have already been assigned to orders received from customers".. Therefore it is also a conclusion...
(3) "but in this case it is clearly not justified" BECAUSE "Burton's case indicates no such thing"

[/b]


In the argument given, the two boldfaced portions play which of the following roles?

A. The first provides evidenceto support the conclusion of the argument as a whole; the second states the conclusion.

B.The 1st states the conclusion of the argument as a whole; the second states an intermediate conclusion that is drawn in order to support that conclusion

C.The 1st is the position that the argument as a whole opposes;the second provides evidence against the position being opposed.

D.The first states an intermediate conclusionthat is drawn in order to support the conclusion of the argument as a whole; the 2nd states the conclusion of the argument as a whole

E. The 1st & the 2nd both state intermediate conclusionsthat are drawn in order to support jointly the conclusions of the argument as a whole.

Answer: B

The correct answer should be B and most of us have selected B but on selecting B, the answer choice B is indicated in RED as the wrong answer and answer choice C is higlighted in green to indicate that it is the correct answer. Is anyone else facing this issue?

Hi BPD,

The question poster has posted the wrong correct option. That is why you are facing this issue. You are right: the correct option is B.

Thanks,
Chiranjeev
