City Council Member: The new law requiring all new drivers to take a drivers' education course is a good one, because studies have shown that new drivers who complete drivers' education courses are much less likely to get into accidents. However, passing this law doesn't mean that we should repeal our city's existing law requiring new drivers to hang a "New Driver" sign from their back window. Our city's drivers will start assuming that all drivers are safe drivers because of the courses, and they won't be extra careful when driving around new drivers. But despite the improvement in their driving due to the courses, new drivers are still much more likely to cause accidents than are experienced drivers, and the drivers around them need to be extra wary in order to avoid accidents, so removing the signs will lead to more accidents.

What role do the two underlined statements play in the city council member's argument?

A) The first provides the basis for a plan, and the second endorses that plan

B) The first states a cause-and-effect relationship that the speaker believes will happen again in the case under consideration, while the second acknowledges an exception to that cause-and-effect relationship.

C)The first is a general principle, while the second is a specific application of that principle.

D The first suggests the positive impact of a decision on the issue at hand, while the second states a belief that other factors will outweigh its positive impact

E ) The first acknowleges a weakness in the speaker's argument, while the second states his argument.

What is wrong with Option B, isn't it the same Option D?

OA D
