### HideShow timer Statistics

Does the position of a car driver’s seat have a significant impact on driving safety? It probably does. Driving position affects both comfort and the ability to see the road clearly. A driver who is uncomfortable eventually becomes fatigued, which makes it difficult to concentrate on the road. Likewise, the better the visibility from the driver’s seat, the more aware the driver can be of road conditions and other vehicles.

Which one of the following most accurately describes the role played in the argument by the claim that driving position affects both comfort and the ability to see the road clearly?

(A) It is the conclusion drawn in the argument.

(B) It is a claim that the argument shows to be inconsistent with available evidence.

(C) It is used to provide a causal explanation for an observed phenomenon.

(D) It describes evidence that the argument ultimately refutes.

(E) It is a premise offered in support of the conclusion drawn in the argument.

Deconstruction of argument tell a clear story.

Argument starts with a question which is later answered in "YES". So yes, driver position is important for safety.
second statement tell you why. Driver's position affect comfort and ability to see the road.
Third statement onward tell you how comfort and how road visibility play role in drivers safety.

So second statement is not conclusion but it is premise on which conclusion is based.
