### HideShow timer Statistics

Social worker: Typically, physicians in the United States who promote specialized services do not charge as much as do physicians who do not promote their services at all. Every time physicians are allowed to promote without restriction, the number of physicians promoting their specialty service has gone up, and patients have paid less for these consultations. Recent changes in regulations of such promotions have lifted the requirement that the amount charged for a consultation appear on the promotion. An effect of this change will be that physicians will no longer be inclined to reduce their fees when they start to promote, and many physicians who promote their services will increase their charges to patients.

In the above argument, the two parts in boldface play which of the following roles?

The first makes a general claim that the social worker takes to be the truth; the second is proposed as an outcome resulting from the general claim’s truth.

The first supplies an action and a consequence that the social worker argues will be replicated; the second recognizes a situation that would cause the action and consequence to fall apart.

The first supplies an action and a consequence that the social worker perceives will no longer hold true; the second gives an explanation to support that perception.

The first provides clarification that the social worker presents in advocacy of a prediction; the second is that prediction.

The first recognizes a perspective that opposes the point that the social worker advocates; the second is that point.

B. The first supplies an action and a consequence that the social worker argues will be replicated; the second recognizes a situation that would cause the action and consequence to fall apart. - Incorrect - BF1 will not be replicated

C. The first supplies an action and a consequence that the social worker perceives will no longer hold true; the second gives an explanation to support that perception. - Correct

D. The first provides clarification that the social worker presents in advocacy of a prediction; the second is that prediction. - Incorrect - BF1 is not a clarification

E. The first recognizes a perspective that opposes the point that the social worker advocates; the second is that point. - Incorrect - BF1 does not oppose BF2. BF1 talks about the current scenario. BF2 is a prediction resulting from the change in regulations.

In C - "perceives will no longer hold true" this part of sentence is problematic. Because even though it will not come true, but it will still be true.

In D - "The first provides clarification that the social worker presents in advocacy of a prediction" IMO, it is clear clarification

Am I wrong?

The second portion is not an explanation.It is the final conclusion......What is the source of this question?
