Hunter: Hunters alone are blamed for the decline in Greenrock National Forest’s deer population over the past ten years. Yet clearly, black bears have also played an important role in this decline. In the past ten years, the forest’s protected black bear population has risen sharply, and examination of black bears found dead in the forest during the deer hunting season showed that a number of them had recently fed on deer.

In the hunter’s argument, the boldface portion plays which of the following roles?

A. It is the main conclusion of the argument.
B. It is an objection that has been raised against the main conclusion of the argument.
C. It is a judgment that the argument opposes.
D. It is a finding that the argument seeks to explain.
E. It provides evidence in support of the main conclusion of the argument.

I will assume that the boldface is - "Yet clearly, black bears have also played an important role in this decline."

If that is the case, then it is clearly the conclusion of the argument and thus the answer is A.

I opted for B - because the first line ( conclusion) is being objected in the second line.

Will try and explain - WHY NOT d .
Although the KILLED bears were found having eaten a deer, we have a few uncertainities here.
1) we dont know how many bears were killed. If suppose, only 10 bears were killed, it might not impact the decision, and the explanation can be wrong.
2) ntohing is known about what the other bears are feeding on. if the increase in bear population is not hunting down deers, the argument doesnt stand.

my 2 cents. dont know how correct i am here.

I picked A.

There can be only one conclusion, bases on the findings of black deer, and that is the one stated in bold face.
