a) the first and the second are both evidence offered by the arguement as support for its main conclusion ==> The second BF is not an evidence
b) the first represents a problem a response to which the argument asseses; the second is the judgment reached by that assessment Correct!
c) the first is the position the argment seeks to establish; the second is a judgment the argument uses to support that position. ==>The first BF is not a position the argument seeks to establish, its a fact
d) the first is a development that the argument seeks to explain; the second is a predicition the argument makes in support of the explanation it offers ==> The stem does not attempt to explain why the company's payout has been larger than it can afford
e) the first presents a development whose likely outcome is at issue in the argument; the second is a judgment the argument uses in support of its conclusion about that outcome. ==> IMO, first BF is a fact thus its not a development with a likely outcome
Don't be afraid to take a flying leap of faith.. If you risk nothing, than you gain nothing...
