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.

Just got the same question in GMAT PREP :

here it is:

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.

It is clear A..


Clearly ---> points that " it is main conclusion"

I don't think B is correct

"Hunters alone are blamed for the decline in Greenrock National Forest’s deer population over the past ten years " --> opposes main conclusion "black bears have also played an important role in this decline "

If you take premise "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.
"
--> leads to "conclusion" . What is the conclusion ..? see which one fits..

Hunter conclusion:. Not only the hunters but also the black bear have played a role in the decline.
So IMO Choice A

I go for B.

I think the main conclusion is stated in first sentence. Human ALONG blamed for deer population. Then goes story about bears. Bears also related to decline. This is counter to main conclusion.

A it is. I also am wondering if the main conclusion can be posed as the following: Hunters alone are blamed for the decline in Greenrock National Forest's deer population over the past ten years.

Assuming that is the main point then the bears would be evidence to support that conclusion. Does 'yet clearly' play a more important role than I am giving it credit?

Clearly A. The "clearly" implies that the conclusion is forthcoming.

OA is A,

In the argument-

Premise:
1.Hunters alone should be not blamed for deer decline.
2.examination of dead black bears show that they had eat deer.

Conclusion-
Hence black bears are responsible for the deer decline as well-> Yet clearly, black bears have also played an important role in this decline
