Editorial: Articles written by reporters of the Daily Planet, a big Newspaper company, are considered unfit for publishing until the Editor in Chief has officially approved them. A efficiency expert has observed that almost all articles written meet the standards for adequacy of quality that the Editor in Chief enforces. The expert has therefore recommended that, because the reporters’ time spent obtaining approval is largely wasted, the Editor in Chief’s approval no longer be required. This recommendation should be rejected as dangerous, however, since there is no assurance that the Editor in Chief’s standards will continue to be observed once approval is no longer required.

In the editorial, the two portions in boldface play which of the following roles?

A.The first is a claim, the accuracy of which is disputed by the editorial; the second is a conclusion drawn in order to support the main conclusion of the editorial.
B.The first is an observation that the editorial disputes; the second is a conclusion that was drawn from that observation.
C.The first is a finding that was used in support of a proposal that the editorial opposes; the second is a judgment that was based on that finding and in turn was used to support the proposal.
D.The first is a finding introduced to support the main conclusion of the editorial; the second is that main conclusion.
E.The first is a conclusion, the evidence for which the editorial evaluates; the second is part of the evidence cited in favor of that conclusion.
