Most musicians in their early years seek training in classical music to build their expertise of musical elements. However, a study shows that when a musician starts receiving widespread acclaim as a pop artist, he or she turns a back to continuing classical music. This supports the theory that after tasting success in popular music, a musician has little incentive for classical music.

In the argument given, the portion in boldface plays which of the following roles?

A- It is the main conclusion of the argument.

B- It provides evidence in support of the conclusion that the argument seeks to establish.

C- It provides the content of a possible explanation that the argument seeks to gain support for.

D- It is a hypothesis that the argument is based upon.

E- It provides the content of a hypothesis that the argument seeks to prove.

I would request an expert's analysis on this question. Is this a good quality question?

Actually, this question can easily be done by using POE tool:

Firstly we can eliminate D and E as these options are totally irrelevant. Also, B can be eliminated as the boldface is not providing any evidence
Between A and C, A can be eliminated as the boldface is not a conclusion of the argument as can be observed from the phrase "This supports the theory " in the main argument.

I thought the bold face was the conclusion of the argument, can someone please explain the reasoning behind the OA?
And what is the source for this question?
