### HideShow timer Statistics

America’s record of protecting species threatened with extinction, which is often depicted as dismal, is in truth an enviable achievement. Since 1973, when the Endangered Species Act took effect, only seven animal species in North America have disappeared. Several hundred others once considered certain to die out continue to exist in the wild. Moreover, a number of species, including the bald eagle and the Arctic peregrine falcon have been or are being taken off the priority-protection list because their numbers have increased considerably now.

(A) The first is a claim that the argument goes on to dispute; the second is information used to strengthen the claim.
(B) The first is a claim that the argument calls into question; the second provides support for the position taken by the argument.
(C) The first is an objection that has been raised against the position taken by the argument; the second is the position taken by the argument.
(D) The first is a claim, the accuracy of which is at issue in the argument; the second is a conclusion drawn on the basis of that claim.
(E) The first is evidence that has been used to support an explanation that the argument challenges; the second is that explanation.

B....by a mile.

Argument goes against the 1st BF.
2nd BF supports the argument.
