Lawyer: Many people blame lawyers alone for the decline in people's ability to resolve conflicts outside of the court system. Yet, clearly, plaintiffs' greed has also played an important role in this decline. In the past ten years, lawsuits involving damages of more than one million dollars have risen sharply, and analysis of those lawsuits show that a number of them involve plaintiffs who decided to sue against the advice of their lawyers.

In the lawyer's argument, the portion in boldface plays which of the following roles?

A. It is the main conclusion of the argument.
B. It is a finding that the argument seeks to explain.
C. It is an explanation that the argument concludes is correct.
D. It provides evidence in support of the main conclusion of the argument.
E. It introduces a judgment that the argument opposes.

Conflicts are everywhere. And I believe that everything must be done to resolve them peacefully. I had conflicts both at home and at work. Therefore, I decided to find out how to ignore someone https://calmerry.com/blog/counseling/ho ... -conflict/ in order to avoid such conflict situations and not spoil relations with relatives. This helped me to avoid conflict and resolve the issue more peacefully.
