Something must be done to stop spam. In early days, people seldom received unsolicited email advertisement; but now that numerous bulk email software and email address finders are developed to collect email address all around the world. Advertisers use email addresses to market their products and even sell such email lists to other advertisers. As a result, almost everyone ever get junk email, and several and even tens of annoying emails a day. So, relevant anti-spam regulations should be framed to stop unsolicited advertising.
The two underlined portions play which of the following roles?
A. Background that the argument depends on and conclusion that can be drawn from the argument.
B. Part of evidence that the argument includes, and inference that can be drawn from this passage.
C. Pre-evidence that the argument depends on and part of evidence that supports the conclusion.
D. Background that argument depends on and part of evidence that supports the conclusion.
E. Pre-evidence that argument includes and a method that helps to supports that conclusion.

The statement "In early days..." is kind of a background given about seldom receipt of unsolicited email advertisement.

Hence D is the best answer

I would go with B

First is part of evidence
The sentence before second boldface is the conclusion. So the second is the one we would expect to happen after the argument.

What's up with all the typo's and grammatical errors in this question?

I go with A. Last and first sentence are both the conclusion, just phrased differently. The first bold:
is background for the premises that follow. These premises support the conclusion.

Problem can be broken like this:-
1) today everyone is getting spams because of so and so reason.
2) Seldome some one was getting spam in early days.
3) so laws should be framed to stop spam.

Point 2 talks about "BACKGROUND" before the problem appeared. So either A or D is true.
Last sentence is either a solution of the problem or conclusion based on the evidences. But it not an evidence at all. Eliminate D.

A wins.

Conclusion sounds more logical than inference. One more A.
