Auto Manufacturer: For the past three years, the Micro has been our best-selling car. This year, however, sales of the Micro have been down for two consecutive quarters. Therefore, we are going to make certain features, like leather seats and CD players, standard on the Micro, rather than require buyers to pay extra for them. This will make the Micro more attractive to buyers, thus stimulating sales.

Auto Dealer: Most people who buy the Micro do so because of its low cost. Adding new standard features will raise the base price of the Micro, costing us sales.

In the argument above, the two statements in bold play which of the following roles?

(A) The first is a conclusion; the second suggests that this conclusion is based on evidence that is irrelevant to the issue at hand.

(B) The first presents a hypothesis; the second casts doubt on the evidence on which that hypothesis is based.

(C) The first provides a conclusion; the second weakens the assumption on which that conclusion relies.

(D) The first offers evidence that is disproved by the second.

(E) The first presents a conclusion; the second supports the conclusion but offers a different interpretation of how it will impact the speaker’s business.

Are these bold-face CR questions new? In working through the GMAT Verbal Bible section on CR they didn't mention it once. Damn outdated books!
