It is well documented that people have positive responses to some words, such as “kind” and
“wonderful” and negative responses to others, such as “evil” and “nausea.” Recently,
psychological experiments have revealed that people also have positive or negative
responses to many nonsense words.
This shows that people’s responses to words are
conditioned not only by what the words mean, but also by how they sound. The boldface
portion plays which one of the following roles in the argument?
A) It is a premise offered in support of the conclusion that people have either a positive or a
negative response to any word.
b) It is a conclusion for which the only support provided is the claim that people’s responses to
words are conditioned both by what the words mean and by how they sound.
c) It is a generalization partially supported by the claim that meaningful words can trigger
positive or negative responses in people.
d) It is a premise offered in support of the conclusion that people’s responses to words are
engendered not only by what the words mean, but also by how they sound.
e) It is a conclusion supported by the claim that people’s responses under experimental
conditions are essentially different from their responses in ordinary situations.

Red ------> Conclusion

So the bold part can't be a conclusion and a generalization (due to a concsequence of an experiment). B C and E are out

Only A and D. reading the conclusion only D has sense :)

Re: CR - BoldFace [#permalink] New post 30 Jul 2012, 15:28
we can see that the bold face statement is introduced by the keyword "recently " so it is adding another premise to the argument so B,C,&E out.

A Vs D
D wins because A is stating incomplete info about the conclusion mentioned in the argument.

It can be seen from the statement ".....people’s responses to words are conditioned not only by what the words mean, but also by how they sound."
