Aeronautical engineer: Often when a person is...

    Aeronautical engineer: Often when a person is disappointed that a social issue has not been solved, she will say “we can put a man on the moon, but we cannot…” and then mention that issue. What these people overlook is that landing a man on the moon is a much less complicated task than they realize. The moon travels a fixed, predictable orbit and obeys the laws of physics. Landing a man on the moon only required scientists to synchronize two objects, the moon and the space shuttle. Many social issues are far more complex than putting a man on the moon, as they require the synchronizations of millions of people and their competing interests.

    In the aeronautical engineer’s argument, the two portions in boldface play which of the following roles?

    A) The first is the conclusion of the argument; the second is evidence for that conclusion.

    B) The first offers a belief that undermines a commonly held view; the second provides justification for that commonly held view.

    C) The first outlines the author’s unconventional stance on an issue; the second provides justification for that stance.

    D) The first is an opinion that the author uses to undermine a commonly held view; the second is the author's conclusion.

    E) The first is a belief that the author uses in support of his conclusion; the second is evidence that supports that conclusion.​

    The OA is E.

    I have several doubts here. Can any expert help me and explain it to me. How should I think in this CR question?
