Critical Reasoning: Argument Structure - Identifying the Premise without Clues

(1) In the high-tech industry, most employees change companies several times throughout their career. (2) However, Doodle is famous in its ability to retain its employees. (3) Doodle's CEO attributes her company's success in retaining employees to the casual, laid-back work environment in Doodle. 

Which of the following is the argument's premise(s)?

While sentence 1 is indeed a premise, it isn't the only premise in the argument.

While sentence 2 is indeed a premise, it isn't the only premise in the argument.

Sentence 3 is a conclusion, not a premise.

Correct!

While sentence 1 is indeed a premise, sentence 3 isn't a premise - it's a conclusion.

While sentence 2 is indeed a premise, sentence 3 isn't a premise - it's a conclusion.

While there are arguments that consist of premises only, this is not one of them. This argument consists of both a premise (possibly, more than 1) and a conclusion.
