There's no doubt about it- we sure do love our guns. Last year, the Small Arms Survey concluded that the United States has 88.9 firearms for every one hundred people. This rate is more than that in Yemen, Mexico, Pakistan, and the West Bank/Gaza combined. Yet, there’s a heck-load of research indicating that a pinch of gun control would keep us safer, and potentially even save our lives. After all, more guns equal more homicides and also equal more suicides.

In the argument given, the portion in boldface plays which of the following roles?

A- It is the main conclusion of the argument.

B- It is a circumstance, the implication of which is at issue in the argument.

C- It is a claim, the accuracy of which is at issue in the argument.

D- It is evidence that is against the main conclusion that the argument seeks to establish.

E- It is a hypothesis that the argument is based upon.

Should be option B. The bold part is neither the main conclusion, claim, evidence, or the main hypothesis.

Undoubtedly (B), its a fact which has been further extended in depth by the author...

Circumstance = A fact or condition connected with or relevant to an event or action.
Claim = State or assert that something is the case, typically without providing evidence or proof.
Evidence = The available body of facts or information indicating whether a belief or proposition is true or valid.
Hypothesis = A supposition or proposed explanation made on the basis of limited evidence as a starting point for further investigation.

C is incorrect .
C) It is a claim, the accuracy of which is at issue in the argument. - Its true that it can be taken as claim but we are discussing about its accuracy like how much we love guns etc. So that's why it is eliminated
