A detective reporter from the Rationale Magazine has recently published an article on the CEO of K&G Ltd. The article states that the CEO is always seen using products made by her business and is never seen using any products from another brand. Since this report was published the sales of K&G products have leaped high. People reason that, if the extremely rich CEO, who has a lot of choices, is still using only K&G brand, then the products should be good. Such reasoning might well be flawed because CEOs are loyal to their brands even if the products might not be top notch.

In the argument given, the two boldfaced portions play which of the following roles?

A. The first describes the circumstance that the argument as a whole seeks to explain; the second provides a statement that the argument as a whole seeks to establish.

B. The first describes evidence that has been taken as supporting a conclusion; the second gives a reason for questioning that support.

C. The first describes evidence that has been taken as supporting a conclusion; the second states a contrary conclusion that is the main conclusion of the argument.

D. The first describes the evidence in support of the main conclusion of the argument; the second states that conclusion.

E. The first describes the circumstance that the argument as a whole seeks to establish; the second gives the explanation that the argument does not dispute.
