This is probably a really silly question, but I'd like to really understand the different parts that make up a CR question. When I'm analyzing each sentence in a CR question, how do I know if the sentence gives support to another sentence or receives support? What does "support" really mean? Is there a "trick", such as a question, I can ask myself about each sentence?

Here is an example:
"Journalist: Obviously, though some animals are purely carnivorous, none would survive without plants. But the dependence is mutual. Many plant species would never have come to be had there been no animals to pollinate, fertilize, and broadcast their seeds. Also, plants' photosynthetic activity would deplete the carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere were it not constantly being replenished by the exhalation of animals, engine fumes, and smoke from fires, many set by human beings."

Which is the conclusion? I'll post the answer later! Thanks for the help!

The conclusion should ties all the given premises together. It should be something like they cannot survive without one another.
