Many physicians cater to their patients’ insistence that they be given antibiotics for a common cold. However, these illnesses are viral in nature, and such medications have no effect on viruses. This course of treatment is troublesome, as antibiotics have dangerous side effects and unnecessary use of these drugs can lead to resistant bacteria. So clearly doctors need to stop prescribing antibiotics to treat the common cold.

Which of the following best describes the role of the two boldfaced portions above?

A. The first is a phenomenon that the argument addresses; the second is evidence used by the author to support his position.
B. The first is a phenomenon that the argument addresses; the second is the author’s primary conclusion.
C. The first is evidence used by the author to support his conclusion; the second is that conclusion.
D. The first is a circumstance that the author tries to explain; the second is that explanation.
E. The first is a circumstance that the author tries to explain; the second is the author’s primary conclusion.

its Option A

as the first statement is the one being discussed further in the argument.


The conclusion of the passage is that not to prescribe antibiotics to patients with cold.. so the second statement is an evidence based on which the conclusion is drawn.

therefor Option A
