1. A cancer drug that shows positive results in early laboratory tests
can generate a great deal of interest from cancer patients.
Because of this interest, and the desire to make a profi…t
early in the development cycle, many pharmaceutical
companies rush the new drug to market as quickly as
possible
.
But positive early results are often misleading,
meaning that the effort to bring the drug to market was largely
wasted. Consequently, the strategy to maximize long-
term profi…t from a new cancer drug is to bring the drug
to market only after its positive effects are more
thoroughly tested and established
.

In the argument above, the two portions in boldface play which
of the following roles?

(A) The fi…rst is a consideration that has been raised to argue
that a certain strategy is counterproductive; the second
presents an alternative strategy.
(B) The fi…rst is a consideration raised to support the strategy
that the argument recommends; the second presents that
strategy.
(C) The fi…rst is a consideration raised to explain the appeal of
a certain strategy; the second presents an alternative
strategy.
(D) The fi…rst is an assumption, rejected by the argument,
that has been used to justify a course of action; the
second presents that course of action.
(E) The …first is a consideration that has been used to justify
pursuing a goal that the argument rejects; the second
presents a course of action that has been adopted in
pursuit of that goal.


Please post in a correct aligned format as it is difficult to read sometimes.
