I got it wrong, but I think B here didn't provide explanations. Instead, it shows the two points of view regarding one dispute. The second BF did reveal the shortcoming in both of them, but did not dismiss them. And it supports the main conclusion - it should focus on other aspects.

I think the first part here is a debate and two sides of view regarding it. Not a consideration and it's two explanations.

(E) The first is an observation that is not disputed by the argument; the second is a belief that supports the conclusion of the argument

How is the first an observation not disputed by the argument. The opponents do dispute it. The second portion of E works but I am having a difficult time understanding the first.
