### HideShow timer Statistics

Hunter: Hunters alone are blamed for the decline in Greenrock National Forestâ€™s deer population over the past ten years. Yet clearly, black bears have also played an important role in this decline. In the past ten years, the forestâ€™s protected black bear population has risen sharply, and examination of black bears found dead in the forest during the deer hunting season showed that a number of them had recently fed on deer.

In the hunterâ€™s argument, the boldface portion plays which of the following roles?

A. It is the main conclusion of the argument.
B. It is an objection that has been raised against the main conclusion of the argument.
C. It is a judgment that the argument opposes.
D. It is a finding that the argument seeks to explain.
E. It provides evidence in support of the main conclusion of the argument.

A,
can not be D. The bold face is a conclusion. It is not a finding.
