Can someone please explain what exactly the word 'consideration' means in these CR questions ?

From experience, a consideration is a factual reasoning/ circumstantial evidence behind a position.

Hi ,

Can anyone please explain what is the conclusion here? Unfortunately, I find none and completely lost in between. Also, please suggest how to approach such kind of question.
Regards,
Pratik

Four Step Process:

1. Identify question. Bold face.

2. Deconstruct argument.
- General rule
- Exception
- Motivation for following general rule
- Drawback of general rule

The exception represents a specific single strategy that according to the author, will maximize profit. Therefore this exception represents the conclusion.

3. Let's look for an answer choice that shows:
i. conclusion
ii. drawback to general rule

4. Focus on the role of the first boldface
A: Keep
B: Keep
C: Keep
D: Keep
E: Eliminate. The argument stated this is a strategy that is more effective than the strategy suggested by the general rule

Let's work with the remaining choices and focus on the role of the second bold face:
A: Maybe
B: The second boldface is a reason to reject the alternate position. The second boldface is not the alternate position. Eliminate
C: The second boldface is a drawback to using the max price approach, not the "less than max price" approach. Eliminate
D: The goal is still to maximize profit. This choice doesn't represent this at all. Eliminate.

My selection: Choice A.
