a very similar question but with different patterns, https://gmatclub.com/forum/after-the-re ... 74927.html
After the recent court rulings, commercial shark fishing and shark hunting will resume in Diamond Bay. Many citizens of the communities around the bay have hailed this move, believing that a decrease in sharks will lead to an increase in all smaller fish, including the endangered Green-Gilled Silverfish, whose only ecosystem is within Diamond Bay. Ecologists, though, disagree, pointing out that a decrease in sharks will lead to a surge in Sea Lions, which are the principal predator of the Green-Gilled Silverfish.

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

A The first provides support for main conclusion of the argument; the second calls that conclusion into question.
B The first describes evidence that has been taken as supporting a conclusion; the second states a contrary conclusion C that is the main conclusion of the argument.
C The first is an opinion that the argument opposes; the second is evidence inconsistent with the conclusion of the argument.
D The first is a conclusion that the argument as a whole seeks to justify; the second is an explanation that supports this conclusion.
E The first supports an action as a beneficial; the second calls that evaluation into question.

CITIZENS : Allowing shark fishing ---->Increase in all smaller fish(including the endangered Green-Gilled Silverfish)
ECOLOGISTS : Decrease in sharks (Due to shark fishing) ---->Surge in Sea Lions ---->Principal predator of the Green-Gilled Silverfish.

Here both the Citizens and Ecologists conclude different ...

Among the given options only(B) satisfies !!!

I too choose E which is incorrect. The second statement doesnot question anything.
Hope this helps.

Its because E says 'first supports an action as beneficial'. But first is itself an action, it doesn't support one.
Hope this helps.

Can some one explain how the second is the conclusion to the argument ? I think the conclusion is that Some people disagree.. pointing out the evidence.. According to this standpoint, B cannot be the answer, since the second part is not a conclusion but an evidence for the conclusion.

Tx,
