Although in the past the media had been abuzz with rumors that the famous film director Ben Zu would send his entry to the prestigious Film Directors’ Guild competition, which invites entries every year from script-writers/directors who are ready to sign the undertaking that their scripts are based on original-story plots, many critics dismissed these rumors, citing the signing of this undertaking as the main impediment to his entering the yearly competition. This year, it is possible that Zu, whose last few films were adaptations of some bestselling Chinese novels, will finally enter the competition as he has signed the required disclosure.

Which of the following options best describes the functions of the statements in boldface?

A. The first describes an opinion which the argument as a whole opposes; the second provides a reason for the position that the argument seeks to establish.

B. The first is a fact that is relevant in understanding the importance of the second, which has been used as a reason for the position taken by the author.

C. The first is a consideration that opposes the position taken by the argument; the second is that position.

D. The first is a position that is disputed by the argument; the second provides support for that position.

E. The first provides support for an intermediate conclusion made in the argument; the second is that conclusion.
