Broadcasting a professional football game allows many members of the public to see the game free of charge, and these broadcast generally do not effect ticket sales. The team owner of a small arena football team has decided to increase interest in the team by transmitting the games over the internet. Owners of other sports teams have disagreed with this action, contending that fans of the arena team will not want to attend games if they can instead watch the games on the internet. However, the arena team owner believes that fans may become interested in the team by seeing the games on the internet, and these individuals will be more likely to purchase tickets.

In the argument above the two portions in boldface play which of the following roles?

A. The first is a justification that is opposed by the arena team owner's conclusion; the second is that conclusion.
B. The first recognizes a factor that supports the arena team owner's plan; the second is a consideration again of that plan.
C. The first is a forecast in support of the arena team owner; the second is data against that forecast.
D. The first is a system of causality that the arena team owner predicts will be applicable to the situation in hand; the second is a general principal that the arena team owner believes is factual.
E. The first is data that strengthens the strategy of the arena team owner; the second represents the pattern of causality that validates the strategy.

Shouldn't the red text above be "against"?

A. The first is a justification that is opposed by the arena team owner's conclusion; the second is that conclusion. (Wrong, the second boldface is not the conclusion of the owner but that of owners of other sports team)

C. The first is a forecast in support of the arena team owner; the second is data against that forecast. (The second boldfaced is not any data whatsoever but a conclusion by owner of other sports team. Data is any premise, a conclusion or a judgement of anyone is NEVER a data)

D. The first is a system of causality that the arena team owner predicts will be applicable to the situation in hand; the second is a general principal that the arena team owner believes is factual. (the second boldface is conclusion by other team owners and not a conclusion which owner of arena believes in; infact opposite of owners belief.)

E. The first is data that strengthens the strategy of the arena team owner; the second represents the pattern of causality that validates the strategy. (The second boldface does not validates the first and infact opposes the first boldface by saying that ticket sales will be affected, whereas the first boldface clearly says the broadcasts generally do not affect the ticket sales.)

At this point we can see 4 other choices are wrong , so naturally B becomes stronger . However I think there is a typo in B, as consideration again doesn't makes sense, if it was 'again' the proper sentence will state 'again a consideration'. 'consideration again' does not makes any sense. It should be consideration AGAINST.

B. The first recognizes a factor that supports the arena team owner's plan; the second is a consideration again of that plan. ( the first statement does suggest that right now team owner does not earns money from free broadcast and thus owner getting interest on internet transmission will raise his profit. As i said it IF 'again' is 'agains't then this statement is completely correct.

It is fine even if it is Again.

The plan is to implement the viewing of the game through internet

Owner Considers: "Broadcasting a professional football game allows many members of the public to see the game free of charge, and these broadcast generally do not effect ticket sales."

Owners of other teams consider, "fans of the arena team will not want to attend games if they can instead watch the games on the internet"

Both the people bases their conclusions on these individual considerations.
