Although sharks are classified as fish, they differ significantly in several respects from other freshwater and saltwater fish. Most significantly, a shark’s skeleton is composed of lightweight, flexible cartilage, providing an advantage in hunting other marine life; other superclasses of fish have stable calcified skeletons. Additionally, sharks possess no swim bladder, the small organ that allows most fish to control their buoyancy; instead, a substantial liver filled with oil works to keep the sharks afloat.

In the argument given, the two highlighted sentences play which of the following roles?

A The first supports the conclusion of the argument; the second summarizes a position that is in opposition to that conclusion.

C The first states the position that the argument as a whole opposes; the second states an intermediate conclusion that provides support for the argument as a whole.
D The first serves as an intermediate conclusion; the second states the conclusion of the argument as a whole.
E The first states the conclusion of the argument as a whole; the second provides support for that conclusion.
