My Sally Excelsior, the largest stakeholder in the Excelsior Clothing Company has recently criticized firms' management that the company is mismanaged. He quoted firm's failure to cut down costs and look for setting up a manufacturing plant in China. However, the investor community feels that the criticism is not justified. Excelsior always stood for strict supervision of garment production and management believes that quality would suffer with offshore production.

In the argument given, the two boldfaced portions play which of the following roles?

A. The first states the position that the argument as a whole opposes; the second provides evidence to undermine the support for the position being opposed.

B. The first states the position that the argument as a whole opposes; the second is evidence that has been used to support the position being opposed.

C. The first states the position that the argument as a whole opposes; the second states the conclusion of the argument as a whole.

D. The first is evidence that has been used to support a position that the argument as a whole opposes; the second provides information to undermine the force of that evidence.

E. The first is evidence that has been used to support a position that the argument as a whole opposes; the second states the conclusion of the argument as a whole.

The first bolded part is a position, not the evidence. Second is a conclusion of the argument. Hence, D and E are out. A and B are out because second part is not the evidence, it is conclusion. Hence C is correct.
