Stylistic evidence and laboratory evidence strongly support the claim that the magnificent painting Garden of Eden is a work of the Flemish master van Eyck. Nevertheless, the painting must have been the work of someone else, as anyone with a little historical and zoological knowledge can tell merely by looking at the painting. The animals in the painting are all vivid representations of actual animals, including armadillos. Yet armadillos are native only to Americas, and van Eyck died decades before Europeans reached the Americas.

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

A. The first is a position that the argument seeks to reject, the second is evidence that the argument uses against that position.
B. The first and the second are each pieces of evidence that have been used to support the position that the argument opposes.
C. The first presents the main conclusion of the argument; the second provides evidence in support of that conclusion.
D. The first is a judgment that serves as the basis for the main conclusion of the argument; the second states that the main conclusion.
E. The first is an intermediate conclusion drawn in order to support a further conclusion stated in the argument; the second provides evidence in support of that intermediate conclusion.

A. The first is a position that the argument seeks to reject, the second is evidence that the argument uses against that position. - Incorrect- First is a position, but the argument doesn't seek to reject it. Actually, the position is the main conclusion of the argument. The second is an evidence, but it is not used to reject the main conclusion, but rather is in fact supporting it.

B. The first and the second are each pieces of evidence that have been used to support the position that the argument opposes. Incorrect- The first is not an evidence, but rather the main conclusion of the passage. The second is an evidence, but it's not supporting an opposing argument. It is rather supporting the main conclusion.

C. The first presents the main conclusion of the argument; the second provides evidence in support of that conclusion. -Correct.

D. The first is a judgment that serves as the basis for the main conclusion of the argument; the second states that the main conclusion. Incorrect- First is a judgement, but it's does not serve a basis for the main conclusion as it itself is the main conclusion. Second is not the main conclusion, but rather an evidence supporting the main conclusion.

E. The first is an intermediate conclusion drawn in order to support a further conclusion stated in the argument; the second provides evidence in support of that intermediate conclusion.- Incorrect-First is not an intermediate conclusion drawn in order to support a further conclusion stated in the argument, but rather the main conclusion. The second provides evidence in support of the first, but first is not an intermediate conclusion, so second is wrong.
