QUESTION TYPE: Role in Argument
CONCLUSION: Jazz is mostly hornlike voices and voicelike horns.
REASONING: Jazz singers use their voices like horns. Jazz hornists use their horns like voices.
ANALYSIS: The word ‘so’ usually indicates a conclusion. So, the last sentence is the conclusion.
The facts about singers and horn players are premises that support the conclusion.
The first sentence is an intermediate conclusion. It’s supported by the second sentence, which tells us that Billie Halliday used her voice like a horn.
- The final sentence is the main conclusion.
- Same as A.
- CORRECT. The second sentence provides evidence that some jazz singers use their voices like horns. The sentence in turn provides support for the main conclusion.
- The second sentence provides evidence for this claim.
- This is true of the second sentence.
But the line in question is the first sentence. The first sentence supports the conclusion directly, and it receives support from the second sentence.
