In order to determine automobile insurance premiums for a driver, insurance companies calculate various risk factors; as the risk factors increase, so does the premium. Certain factors, such as the driver’s age and past accident history, play an important role in these calculations. Yet these premiums should also increase with the frequency with which a person drives. After all, a person’s chance of being involved in a mishap increases in proportion to the number of times that person drives.

The claim that insurance premiums should increase as the frequency with which a driver drives increases plays which one of the following roles in the argument?

(A) a premise of the argument
(B) the conclusion of the argument
(C) evidence offered in support of one of the premises
(D) an assertion phrased to preclude an anticipated objection
(E) a clarification of a key term in the argument
