### HideShow timer Statistics

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 driverâ€™s age and past accident history, play an important role in these calculations. Yet these premiums should also increase drives. After all, a personâ€™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

D..........I think it is an assertion phrased to preclude any anticipated objection. "yet" is used in the sentence and that shows possibility of an objection.

what is OA?

Yeah this one could be a little tricky - but B works pretty clearly when yuo think about it.

The premise is that premiums are calculated according to risk, and the conclusion is that as risk increases so do premiums.

If drivers increase driving, then their premiums should increase. That is exactly what the conclusion states.
