### HideShow timer Statistics

A team of German scientists recently concluded a ten year study on the relationship between red or white meat consumption and the risk of intestinal cancer; the study revealed that those who ate on average more than one serving per week of red meat had 44 percent less risk for developing Adenocarcinoma, the most common form of intestinal cancer. Though all previous studies on the relationship between red meat and the prevalence of intestinal cancer have been inconclusive, the German scientists attribute the lower rate of intestinal cancer to increased intake of myoglobin. White meat is rarely rich in myoglobin, and those in the study who ate white meat had the same risk for developing Adenocarcinoma as those who ate no meat at all.

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

A.The first is an opinion that is supported by the argument; the second is one part of the information uncovered in the study.
B.The first presents the quandary the scientists are attempting to solve; the second is the result of that quandary.
C.The first is a fact that goes against the argument that is being presented; the second is one element of a logical argument in support of the scientists claim.
D.The first is a claim in support of the argument; the second is a piece of evidence against the argument.
E.The first is an explanation advocated by the argument; the second is a finding used to challenge that explanation.

BF1 - Fact: Study results were inconclusive.
BF2 - A fact supporting why eating white meat may not have any impact on prevalence of intestinal cancer.

A - BF1 is a fact, not opinion.
B - BF2 is not the result of the study. It is a separate finding.
C - BF1 and BF2 - correct answer. BF1 goes against the argument as results are inconclusive.
D - BF1 - not supporting the argument, BF2 - wrong
E - BF2 is not challenging BF1 findings.
