(A) contradicts a premise on which X’s argument relies
(B) disagrees with X about the weight to be given to animal suffering as opposed to human suffering
(C) presents a logical consequence of the premises of X’s argument
(D) strengthens X’s argument by presenting evidence not mentioned by X’s argument
