In addition to irritating the majority who already behave responsibly, It may undermine all government pronouncements on health by convincing people that such messages are overly cautious. And there is no reason to believe that those who ignore measured voices will listen to shouting. The two sections in boldface play which of the following roles in the public health expert's argument? (A) The ﬁrst is a conclusion for which support is provided. but is not the argument's main conclusion; the second is an unsupported premise supporting the arguments main conclusion. (B) The ﬁrst is a premise supporting the only explicit conclusion; so is the second. (C) The ﬁrst is the argument's main conclusion; the second supports that conclusion and is itself a conclusion for which support is provided. (D) The ﬁrst is a premise supporting the argument's only conclusion; the second is that conclusion. (E) The ﬁrst is the argument‘s only explicit conclusion; the second is a premise supporting that conclusion. OA = E Why is C wrong? Isn't the second part a subconclusion for which we can say support is provided in terms of 'by convincing people that such messages are overly cautious"? Need free GMAT or MBA advice from an expert?

Isn't the second part a subconclusion for which we can say support is provided in terms of 'by convincing people that such messages are overly cautious"? The first part of the choice C is correct. However, the second part is wrong. There is not support provided for this statement outside the bold faced portion. _________________ Ankur 99th Percentile GMAT Tutor | Optimus Prep™ Optimus Prep™ GMAT Courses: www.Optimus-Prep.com/GMAT Free Online Trial Hour: http://www.optimus-prep.com/request-free-online-trial-hour/ Free GMAT Study Plan: http://www.optimus-prep.com/ebook/ Optimus Prep™ Rates: GMAT Private Tutoring Online:$80-100/hr.*
