Hunter: Many people blame hunters alone 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 portion in boldface plays which of the following roles?
(A) It is the main conclusion of the argument.
(B) It is a finding that the argument seeks to explain.
(C) It is an explanation that the argument concludes is correct.
(D) It provides evidence in support of the main conclusion of the argument.
(E) It introduces a judgment that the argument opposes

I think the answer to this question should be E. Here's my line of reasoning

Premise: Many people blame hunters alone for the decline in Greenrock National Forest's deer population over the past ten years.
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.

Conclusion: Yet clearly, black bears have also played an important role in this decline.

(A) It is the main conclusion of the argument.

No, the conclusion is that bears have also played an important role in this decline

(B) It is a finding that the argument seeks to explain.
No, The argument seeks to explain why black bears have played an important role for the decline in Greenrock National Forest's deer population

(C) It is an explanation that the argument concludes is correct.

The author concludes that this is not correct.

(D) It provides evidence in support of the main conclusion of the argument.
This premise does not support the main conlusion.

(E) It introduces a judgment that the argument opposes -
Correct. The author concludes that the black bear has played an important role,so people should not blame only hunters.

Yes it does, look at this way: the common belief is that hunters are responsible for deer population decline which is first bolded statement. The whole argument is against this to prove/conclude Black Bear play a great role and the hunters are not solely responsible

Apply the strategy in MGMAT CR:
- Conclusion: Black bears have also played an important role in this decline
- Premise for: 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.
- Premise against: Many people blame hunters alone for the decline in Greenrock National Forest's deer population over the past ten years.

This argument has a common structure of many CR problems: Some people claim/say that... Then an opposite idea appears to refute the initial opinion. Pay attention to the transitive word "YET" to spot the change in the argument.

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

(A) It is the main conclusion of the argument.
No. Not the main conclusion.
(B) It is a finding that the argument seeks to explain.
it's no where mentioned as a "finding" ( finding is applicable if something is found out of a research, survey etc..)
(C) It is an explanation that the argument concludes is correct.
the argument concludes is right opposite to the bold faced sentence,rather it is just "blame" which the hunters think that people blame them ...
(D) It provides evidence in support of the main conclusion of the argument.
it's not at all supporting the main conclusion.Also, it's not an evidence.
(E) It introduces a judgment that the argument opposes
correct. As "it "(boldface) is a matter which is introduced by the hunters .It states that people blame them for the decline in Deer population.Also, the hunter is concluding a different reason for that.

Regarding the correct answer E

The author doesn't completely oppose the bold face statement in his conclusion - "Yet clearly, black bears have also played an important role in this decline".

Does someone care to explain?

thanks
