The intermediate conclusion should be "those worrisome rumors must be false." the first bold " top executives evidently have faith in the bank's financial soundness, " should be the evidence to support the intermediate conclusion.

D is right only because the second bold-part is the main conclusion. Very poorly written question.
What is the source?

Please POE. Its hard to reach the correct answer on this one.

Since it has become known that several of a bank's top executives have been buying shares in their own bank, the bank's depositors, who had been worried by rumors that the bank faced impending financial collapse, have been greatly relieved. They reason that since top executives evidently have faith in the bank's financial soundness, those worrisome rumors must be false. They might well be overoptimistic, however since corporate executives have sometimes bought shares in their own company in a calculated attempt to dispel negative rumors about the company's health.

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

A. The first summarizes the evidence used in the reasoning called into question by the argument; the second states the counterevidence on which the argument relies.

B. The first summarizes the evidence used in the reasoning called into question by the argument; the second is an intermediate conclusion supported by the evidence.

C. The first is an intermediate conclusion that forms part of the reasoning called into question by the argument; the second is evidence that undermines the support for this intermediate conclusion.

D. The first is an intermediate conclusion that forms part of the reasoning called into question by the argument; the second is the main conclusion of the argument.

E. The first is an intermediate conclusion that forms part of the reasoning called into question by the argument; the second states a further conclusion supported by this intermediate conclusion.

Got confused between C and D. Then picked C. But after looking at the C I realised I did not pay enough attention to the question stem. In the later part in C it states that the second is evidence which is no way an evidence. Hence D should be the answer.
