Q: Antonio: Although many attorneys stress the importance of writing a will to govern the distribution of one’s property upon death, most people would be better off not drafting a will. Intestacy laws govern the disposition of the estates, the financial assets and personal belongings, of people who die without wills. These laws generally divide the deceased’s assets among the surviving spouse and children, if any. Because most people would choose a similar division of property if they drafted wills, they should avoid the expense of hiring an attorney to draft a will.

Beatrice: But the distribution of assets is not the only function handled by a will. The document also determines the guardianship of minor children if both parents are dead. Thus, a will can serve a useful purpose even if the distribution of assets would be the same as that under intestacy laws.

Which of the following best describes the roles played by the bolded phrases in the discussion above?



A: The first phrase states an exception to a general principle, and the second restates that principle.

B: The first phrase states a position, and the second provides evidence supporting an alternate position

C: The first phrase presents factual evidence, and the second disputes the accuracy of that evidence.

D: The first phrase states the conclusion of an argument, and the second contradicts a premise upon which the conclusion is based.

E: The first phrase contradicts generally accepted beliefs, and the second describes a specific example of those beliefs.


CAN anyone please explain the difference between POSITION and CONCLUSION??

i get confused between these 2 terms... please use the above example to explain ...
