### HideShow timer Statistics

Gasoline-powered boat engines manufactured in the North American country prior to 1990 contribute significantly to the pollution found in the worldâ€™s oceans. In 1990, however, the government imposed stricter pollution controls on gasoline engines manufactured for boats, and beginning in 1995, the government imposed a program of inspections for pre-1990 boat engines with increasingly rigorous pollution standards. As the older boat engines fail to pass inspection, boat owners are increasingly retiring their old engines in favor of newer, less-polluting boat engines. As a result, the amount of pollution these older boat engines emit into the worldâ€™s oceans will steadily decrease over the next en years.

The two portions in boldface play which of the following roles?

A. The first is a pattern of cause and effect that acts as an evidence in support of this argument; the second is the conclusion that can be drawn from this argument.
B. The first is a fact that acts as a principle in support of this argument; the second is the conclusion that must be drawn from this argument.
C. The first is a pattern of cause and effect that acts as an special evidence in support of the conclusion; the second is a general point that can be drawn from this argument.
D. The first is a pattern of cause and effect that acts as the third evidence in support of the argument; the second is a conclusion that must be true.
E. The first is a final evidence in support of the argument; the second is a conclusion that can be drawn only from the first
