Although computer manufacturer X has experienced decreasing sales in the last quarter, stockholder should not sell their shares of the company. The stock price of a financially troubled company can rise dramatically once these problems are solved. Last year, the stock price of steel manufacturer Y rebounded after the company reduced its accounts receivable backlog.

A - The first phrase contains the author's conclusion and the second phrase contains unrelated information.

B - The first phrase states a position and the second phrase provides evidence to undermine that position.

C - The first phrase states a premise on which the conclusion is based and the second phrase provides the conclusion.

D - The first phrase states the conclusion and the second phrase supports the conclusion with an analogy.

E - The first phrase offers advice and the second phrase draws a contrast between two companies.

Th conclusion is "The stock price of a financially troubled company can rise dramatically once these problems are solved"

So I will pick B as the 1st phrase looks like a position that the author is trying to state

current :king of CR Boldfacers says the answer is D :lol:

why not B??? because the second bold face in no way UNDERMINES the previously stated conclusion... it actually supports the fact that you should not sell the stock :!:

Clear winner D.

The first is the conclusion of the author and he uses the steel company as an analogy to support his earlier stated position.

B can`t be correct because the second sentence supports, not undermines the the first sentence.
