The music at live events and entertainment venues is played at much higher volume levels than it was 50 years ago. Some audiologists believe that hearing disorders will become more commonplace. Damage done to the auditory system is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to repair. Although some people are aware that music at very high volumes can cause damage, many refrain from taking the necessary precautions to prevent such damage.

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

(a) The first is a fact presented by audiologists; the second is evidence which proves this fact.
(b) The first is a theoretical prediction, the second is a conclusion to the argument.
(c) The first is an opinion shared by certain audiologists; the second is a fact that supports this opinion.
(d) The first is a premise that presents a future situation, the second is an explanation for the circumstances of this situation.
(e) The first is a viewpoint shared by a number of professionals; the second is an inference based on this viewpoint.

First is a prediction, and second is a support to it.

(e) The first is a viewpoint shared by a number of professionals; the second is an inference based on this viewpoint.Its showing a reverse relationship. Many refrain... and hence it will become commonplace...


I think it should be C.
