Robert Chase, the publishing magnate, has a net worth of 5 billion dollars and chase has not financed any Hollywood movies, so he must be accepted as a member at the Brown Country Club.

The two portions in boldface play which of the following roles?

(A) The first is the part of evidence in support of this argument; the second is the conclusion that could not be drawn from all evidence that the argument contains.
(B) The first is the first-evidence that supports this argument; the second is the mainpoint that must be drawn from all evidence that the argument includes.
(C) The first is the one fact of two that argument includes; the second is the conclusion that could be drawn from this passage.
(D) The first is the background that is necessary for this argument; the second is the conclusion that is not drawn only from the first.
(E) The first is the cause that the argument includes; the second is the effect that can be drawn only from this cause.

I am going to go with C.

The conclusion of the argument is that Robert Chase must be accepted at the country club. The two evidences supporting this conclusion are 1) one must have X and Y to become a member 2) robert has X and Y

I haven't uderstood the question completely but I will take A here.

Robert chase doesn't satisfy the second condition. He hasn't financed any HOLLOYWOOD movies doesn't necessary mean he has no connections with entertainment industry.

The first sentence of the passage states two requirements that have to be satisfied. He definitely satisfies one of them and possibly satisfies the other one if more information is presented, so the conclusion as it is in the second bold part is probable.

C it is.

clearly C.

A can not be the right answer bacuse:
(A) The first is the part of evidence in support of this argument; the second is the conclusion that could not be drawn from all evidence that the argument contains.

I go for A . i will explain other way !

C is wrong because it does not follow that just because one does not finance any movie he would not have connections to the entertainment industry !

imo, it should be D because robert doesnot fulfill the requirement to be the member of the club since his net worth is not sufficient and he hasnot financed any hollywood movie doesnot proved that he is not associated with entertainment induustry..............................

so i go with D. however, I donot have OA. i will try finding............

A here. In C, the staement says that the conclusion could be drawn, but the argument doesnt state that the guy hasnt financed any other entertainment apart from not financing Holl movies.

D for me

-We cannot say whether Robert should be given admission or not just on the basis of whether he ihas not financed any movies...This doesnt tells whether he still has any association with entertainment industry or not.
So D..

But somehow A also looks good..How can we refute A??

This is a very clear A for me.

Robert has one of the two qualifications he needs to be admited into the club. So first phrase is the evidence.
Since Robert does not satisfy the two conditions, he cannot be admitted. SO the second phrase is the conclusion that cannot be drawn.

Why is D wrong? Because the first phrase is not a mere background, but is an evidence.

A says that the first is the part of evidence in support of this argument but it doesnot support the argument. the first only provides the background information about Robert that he is x and he has not done y.

only D explains the argument.....
