### HideShow timer Statistics

The survival of the publishing industry depends upon the existence of a public who will buy the printed word in the form of newspapers, books and magazines. Over the past several years, however, the advance of electronic media, particularly CD-ROMs, online computer services, and the Internet, has made 9information available to the public electronically without the need for printed materials. As the availability of electronic media increases and as it is more easily accessible, the public has less need for printed materials. So the publishing industry is threatened by the advance of the computer information age.

The two portions in boldface play which of the following roles?

(A) The first is the part of evidence that the argument includes, the second is the conclusion that can be drawn only from the first.

(B) The first is the second-premise that the argument includes; the second is the conclusion that is reasonably drawn form this passage.

(C) The first is the second-premise that the argument includes, the second is the inference that must be drawn from this argument.

(D) The first is the fact that must be true, the second is the inference that can be correctly drawn from this argument.

(E) The first is the part of premise that the argument depends on; the second is the conclusion that is incorrectly drawn from this argument

B looks fine.

There are two premises in the argument. First publishing industry depends on its customers and second says the customer base will dimish because of some fact. Finally ca conclusion is drawn. The assumption here is that the publisihing company produces only paper material and not the electronic media.

B

I was thinking why not D. then reading it one more time i came to conclusion the first statement is not only a statement but also a premise.

B..

Only C comes close...but the imposing language of this choice rules it out.
