Gasoline-powered boat engines manufactured in the a North American
country prior to 1990 contribute significantly to the pollution found
in the world's oceans. In 1990, however, the government imposed
stricter pollution controls on gasoline engines manufactured for
boats, and beginning in 1995, the government imposed a program of
inspections for pre-1990 boat engines with increasingly rigorous
pollution standards. As the older boat engines fail to pass
inspection, boat owners are increasingly retiring their old engines
in favor of newer, less-polluting boat engines.
As a result, the
amount of pollution these older boat engines emit into the
world's oceans will steadily decrease over the next en years.


The two portions in boldface play which of the following roles?
A. The first is a pattern of cause and effect that acts as an
evidence in support of this argument; the second is the conclusion
that can be drawn from this argument.
B. The first is a fact that acts as a principle in support of this
argument; the second is the conclusion that must be drawn from this
argument.
C. The first is a pattern of cause and effect that acts as an special
evidence in support of the conclusion; the second is a general point
that can be drawn from this argument.
D. The first is a pattern of cause and effect that acts as the third
evidence in support of the argument; the second is a conclusion that
must be true.
E. The first is a final evidence in support of the argument; the
second is a conclusion that can be drawn only from the first.

I am leaning towards E

A
B is out. 1st is not a fact. it is just an evidence...
C 1st is not special evidence and second is not a general point.. Second is a conclusion
D ( the second is a conclusion that must be true. ) is too extreme... OUT
E

A and E are close

Why I am picking E over A is because the overall argument says that pollution control is in effect because of boat engines. Mutiple things are being done and one of them is the inspection of older boats. And because of this inspection, owners are replacing the older boats with new and because of this the pollution from older boats wll decrease

which is what E says that second is a conclusion that can be drwan from 1st.

I may be completely wrong..

I will go with A

I think anybody can make an argument for either A or D or E – these are very close.

The only reason that I elimianted D & E are for their extreme words. D says second conclusion must be true and E says conclusion can be drawn only from the first
