Real Estate Agent: Next year, the occupancy rate for residential rental properties in
Riverton will increase despite projections of decreasing population in the city.

Generally, when a city’s population decreases, so does the occupancy rate for residential
rental properties. However, in the continuing climate of increasing interest rates on home
mortgages, an unusually large number of Riverton residents who would typically buy
homes will opt to rent instead.
The boldfaced statements in the argument above play which
of the following roles?
A) The first is a conclusion drawn by the agent; the second is evidence that weighs against the
agent’s conclusion.
b) The first is a consideration that weighs against the agent’s prediction; the second is that
prediction.
c) The first describes a pattern of cause and effect; the second describes a situation for which
this pattern will not hold.
d) The first is the agent’s prediction; the second is reasoning offered in support of this
prediction.
e) The first is an undisputed statement of fact; the second is a position that is supported by this
fact.

I eliminated down to C, D but since there is a word "next year", I picked D.
