Arguement:
Philosophy has practical application to the real world.

Conclusion:
None I suppose

First bold statement is an objection to the common thinking about philosophy.
Second bold statement puts forth information in support to the objection stated in the first bold statement.

C - Statisfies the both conditions.

+1 C

However, I think this is not a Gmat question.
The objection is the conclusion of this argument. A would be correct too.

C seems right. Though i was also confused that A might be the answer.

IMO C,

Fastest way to arrive at C is that C is only option that does not mention the word "conclusion". There is, in fact, no conclusion in the given argument.

The first phrase states the conclusion and the second phrase offers support for that conclusion.
first one is not a conclusion, it is just a statement made without any support. It is a premise.

The first phrase introduces evidence supporting a conclusion, and the second phrase contains that evidence.
Same as above

The first phrase contains an objection to a common perception, and the second phrase offers support for that objection.
Correct

The first phrase states a premise on which the conclusion is based, and the second phrase offers a supporting definition.
Same as first

The first phrase defines a word crucial to the argument, and the second phrase states the conclusion.
2nd is not a conclusion

I think it is B.

The conclusion here is that philosophy is a practical science. 'History suggest otherwise' introduces the evidence supporting this conclusion and the last line gives that conclusion.

Thoughts from anybody?
