Instigated primarily by the Irish Republican Brotherhood, the Easter Rising of 1916 was a landmark event in the battle against English rule. Armed members of the Brotherhood, in concert with the Irish Volunteers, seized control of several government buildings in the capital city of Dublin and issued the Easter Proclamation, a proclamation of Irish independence. However, the rebels were outnumbered by British forces, which had greater access to weapons and ammunition.
The siege ended with the unconditional surrender of the militant forces, and sixteen of their leaders were subsequently executed for their roles in the uprising. Those who survived, however, went on with renewed fervor to lobby for Ireland’s independence, and the public nature of the uprising changed popular sentiment about British rule. While the Easter Rising was a failure by military and tactical standards, it is viewed as an important milestone in the 1919 establishment of the Republic of Ireland.

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

A The first states the conclusion of the argument as a whole; the second provides support for part of that conclusion.
B The first provides support for the conclusion of the argument as a whole; the second provides evidence that supports an objection to that conclusion.
C The first provides support for part of the conclusion of the argument as a whole; the second states the argument’s conclusion.
D The first provides support for an intermediate conclusion that supports a further conclusion stated in the argument; the second states that intermediate conclusion.
E The first states an outside position that the argument as a whole supports; the second states the conclusion of the argument.
