Ph.D. programs are valuable only if they make it possible for the student to quickly participate in his or her chosen field and ingrain good methods of study and research. For this reason, doctoral dissertations should not be required in the humanities. Producing a quality book-length dissertation demands an accumulation of knowledge virtually impossible for those relatively new to their disciplines. The student consequently ends up spending years producing a work of quality or seeks to compensate for poor quality with quantity. Either way, the dissertation is counterproductive and frustrates the goals of the doctoral program.

The two statements above in bold-faced type serve which of the following functions?

(A) The first statement is an intermediate conclusion of the argument, and the second statement is a refutation of the main conclusion of the argument.
(B) The first statement is the main conclusion of the argument, and the second statement is an intermediate conclusion that supports the main conclusion.
(C) The first statement is a refutation of the main conclusion of the argument, and the second statement provides context for the argument.
(D) The first statement is an assumption on which the main conclusion is directly based, and the second statement is a premise that supports the main conclusion.
(E) The first statement is a premise that supports an intermediate conclusion, and the second statement is a premise that supports the main conclusion.

It is B for sure

(A) opposite is true
(B) argument starts with very general conclusion and supports it further with a more detailed one... SCORE!
(C) refutation? nothing is being refuted
(D) The first statement is an assumption STOP READING here... assumption is NEVER stated!
(E) premise? "for this reason..." shows start of the conclusion.

Will go with B.
The second statement is supporting the first one.

Can rule our D and E. Assumptions are not stated.
A - second statement is not refuting anything.
C - The first statement is alsonot refuting anything. Its a statement.
