Note that the original question is not the same as this one. The bold parts are different and hence the OA is different. In the previous comments, I have mentioned time and again that there are two different questions (where the bold sentences are different). The OA of the original question is (B) only.

Coming off the back of last weeks article about sanitizing my makeup I purged my collection and disposed of all my unused and old cosmetics. Needless to say, my collection is now substantially smaller. Not to worry, I suppose it gives me an excuse to branch out and experiment with some new products right? After my purge I ended up pondering how often I purchase cosmetics and then refuse to throw them out. Unfortunately you have caught me. That's right I am a functioning makeup hoarder! I once kept a tube of discontinued lipstick from my favourite brand for about seven years before I could bear to part with it. O_o can I detect product expiration here?

was stucked between B and D.
First BF: Fact / Evidence / Support to the conclusion
Second BF: hmm... the word WETHER makes it NEUTRAL, because we don't know the answer yet.
Conclusion: clearly --> YES

(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 - CORRECT

(C) The first states the conclusion of the argument; the second calls that conclusion into question.
(D) The first provides support for the conclusion of the argument; the second calls that conclusion into question. --> to call into question -means smth. negative for the conclusion, but the 2nd BF is not negative (to make a question has not the same impact as call into question on the GMAT , the word wether is neutral
(E)Each provides support for the conclusion of the argument - second BF is neutral - doesn't support the conclusion

There are two versions of questions:

Version : 1

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 level of output is held constant.

In the argument given, the two boldfaced 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 conclusion of the argument; the second calls that conclusion into question.
(D) The first provides support for the conclusion of the argument; the second calls that conclusion into question.
(E) Each provides support for the conclusion of the argument.

Solution:
1st Bold Faced
Delta Products Inc. has recently switched at least partly from older technologies using fossil fuels to new technologies powered by electricity.
This is a fact and it also supports the conclusion.
What is the conclusion:
clearly, is yes (that for a given level of output Delta's operation now causes less fossil fuel to be consumed than it did formerly)
And
2nd Bold Faced
for a given level of output Delta's operation now causes less fossil fuel to be consumed than it did formerly
is part of the full conclusion.
The author infers that Yes, for a given level of output Delta's operation now causes less fossil fuel to be consumed than it did formerly

Now lets do POE:

(A) The first identifies the content of the conclusion of the argument; the second provides support for that conclusion.
First is a fact that supports the conclusion but not the "content of the conclusion"

(B) The first provides support for the conclusion of the argument; the second identifies the content of that conclusion.
Correct because of the above reasoning

(C) The first states the conclusion of the argument; the second calls that conclusion into question.
1st supports the the conclusion and doesn't state the conclusion of the argument
2nd states the conclusion and definitely doesn't calls that conclusion into conclusion

(D) The first provides support for the conclusion of the argument; the second calls that conclusion into question.
2nd states the conclusion and definitely doesn't calls that conclusion into conclusion

(E) Each provides support for the conclusion of the argument.
2nd states the conclusion, option B) is better than Option E)

Version 2:

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

As the analysis is same for both the version as premise is same, lets do the POE:

(A) The first identifies the content of the conclusion of the argument; the second provides support for that conclusion.
First is a fact that supports the conclusion but not the "content of the conclusion"

(B) The first provides support for the conclusion of the argument; the second identifies the content of that conclusion.
2nd BF doesn't identify the content of the conclusion. It supports the conclusion

(C) The first states the conclusion of the argument; the second calls that conclusion into question.
1st supports the the conclusion and doesn't states the conclusion of the argument
2nd also supports the argument and definitely doesn't calls that conclusion into conclusion

(D) The first provides support for the conclusion of the argument; the second calls that conclusion into question.
2nd also supports the argument and definitely doesn't calls that conclusion into conclusion

(E) Each provides support for the conclusion of the argument.
Correct as both the statements supports the argument
