### HideShow timer Statistics

In countries where automobile insurance includes compensation for whiplash
injuries sustained in automobile accidents, reports of having suffered such injuries
are twice as frequent as they are in countries where whiplash is not covered
.
Presently, no objective test for whiplash exists, so it is true that spurious reports of
whiplash injuries cannot be readily identified. Nevertheless, these facts do not warrant
a conclusion that has been drawn by some commentators
: that in the countries with
the higher rates of reported whiplash injuries, half of the reported cases are spurious.
Clearly, in countries where automobile insurance does not include compensation for
whiplash, people often have little incentive to report whiplash injuries that they actually
have suffered.
In the argument given, the two boldfaced portions play which of the following roles?
A. The first is a claim that the argument disputes; the second is a conclusion that has
been based on that claim.
B. The first is claim that has been used to support a position that the argument
accepts; the second is a position that the argument rejects.
C. The first is a finding whose accuracy is evaluated in the argument; the second is
the judgment reached by the argument concerning the accuracy of the finding.
D. The first is a finding whose implications are at issue in the argument; the second
is the judgment reached by the argument concerning one alleged implication.
E. The first is a finding, the explanation of which is at issue in the argument; the
second is an objection that has been raised against the explanation that the
argument defends.

Can you indicate the bold-faced portions.

Give me D!

The second boldfaced portion is an objection raised against the explanation. The argument is not defending the explanation, but is in fact attacking it with the second boldfaced portion.

It's C

The findings are accurate, but the implications are at issue

I haven't seen an OA on here, but I go with D,

The reason why I feel C is wrong is that it states the first bold face is

"a finding whose accuracy is evaluated in the argument"

But the accuracy of the finding is not being disputed. The finding is fact. What is being disputed is the interpretation of the finding.

The first is not a claim, its a finding, and therefore A, B, C are out.

Quote:
E. The first is a finding, the explanation of which is at issue in the argument; the second is an objection that has been raised against the explanation that the argument defends.

The second is clearly not an objection against the explanation that the argument defends,

E

Between D and E, because the first is not a claim.

D says that the implications of the first BF are at issue in the argument. This is not true, we are looking for the reasoning behind BF#1

BF#2 is an objection to the argument " Nevertheless, ...."
