Peopleâ€™s political behavior frequently does not match their rhetoric. Although many complain about government intervention in their lives, they tend not to reelect inactive politicians. But a politicianâ€™s activity consists largely in the passage of laws whose enforcement affects votersâ€™ lives. Thus, voters often reelect politicians whose behavior they resent.
Which one of the following most accurately describes the role played in the argument by the claim that people tend not to reelect inactive politicians?
(A) It describes a phenomenon for which the argumentâ€™s conclusion is offered as an explanation.
(B) It is a premise offered in support of the conclusion that voters often reelect politicians whose behavior they resent.
(C) It is offered as an example of how a politicianâ€™s activity consists largely in the passage of laws whose enforcement interferes with votersâ€™ lives.
(D) It is a generalization based on the claim that people complain about government intervention in their lives.
(E) It is cited as evidence that peopleâ€™s behavior never matches their political beliefs.
I'm wondering between B and E
but i chose E
it's clearer that there's a discrepancy between how people think and how thay act ( don't want to be disturbed, so they shuold vote for inactive politicians but the reality is on the contrary)
