### HideShow timer Statistics

Although computer manufacturer X has experienced decreasing sales in the last quarter, stockholder should not sell their shares of the company.

Last year, the stock price of steel manufacturer Y rebounded after the company reduced its accounts receivable backlog.

C - The first phrase states a premise on which the conclusion is based and the second phrase provides the conclusion.

D - The first phrase states the conclusion and the second phrase supports the conclusion with an analogy.

E - The first phrase offers advice and the second phrase draws a contrast between two companies.

Th conclusion is "The stock price of a financially troubled company can rise dramatically once these problems are solved"

So I will pick B as the 1st phrase looks like a position that the author is trying to state

current of CR Boldfacers says the answer is D

why not B??? because the second bold face in no way UNDERMINES the previously stated conclusion... it actually supports the fact that you should not sell the stock

Clear winner D.

The first is the conclusion of the author and he uses the steel company as an analogy to support his earlier stated position.

B is the winner

B can`t be correct because the second sentence supports, not undermines the the first sentence.
