Could any one of you please help me with the answer with reasons to this CR question. Gosh, these bold face questions are very time consuming.
Any tip/method for quickly solving these kind of problems???
City Official: At City Hospital, uninsured patients tend to have shorter stays and fewer procedures performed than do insured patients, even though insured patients, on average, have slightly less serious medical problems at the time of admission to the hospital than uninsured patients have. Critics of the hospital have concluded that the uninsured patients are not receiving proper medical care.
However, this conclusion is almost certainly false.

A. The first states the conclusion of the city officialâ€™s argument; the second provides support for that conclusion.
B. The first is used to support the conclusion of the city officialâ€™s argument; the second states that conclusion.
C. The first was used to support the conclusion drawn by hospital critics; the second states the position that the city officialâ€™s argument opposes.
D. The first was used to support the conclusion drawn by hospital critics; the second provides support for the conclusion of the city officialâ€™s argument.
