Delta products, Inc., has recently switched at least partly from older technologies using fossil fuels to new technologies powered by electricity. The question has been raised whether it can be concluded that for a given level of output, Delta’s operation now causes less fossil fuel to be consumed than it did formerly. The answer, clearly, is yes, since the amount of fossil fuel used to generate the electricity needed to power the new technologies is less than the amount needed to power the older technologies, provided that the level of output is held constant.


In the argument given, the two boldface portions play which of the following roles?


A. The first identifies the content of the conclusion of the argument; the second
provides support for that conclusion.
B. The first provides support for the conclusion of the argument; the second
identifies the content of that conclusion.
C. The first states the position that the argument opposes; the second states the
conclusion of the argument.
D. Each provides evidence that calls the conclusion of the argument into question.
E. Each provides support for the conclusion of the argument.

I GO WITH A. but...

I find the logic of this article as follows;

Question) Does Delta now consume less fossil fuel?
Answer) Yes, (1) Delta switched to new technology and (2) this new technology uses less fossil fuel.

I vote for (E).
