Critical Reasoning: Argument Structure - Identifying the Conclusion without Clues

(1) A new law in Country X prohibits smoking in restaurants whose area is less than 300 square feet. (2) The owner of Planet Pluto, a 250-square-foot restaurant with a mostly smoking clientele, plans to close the restaurant.      

The argument's conclusion appears in which sentence(s)?

Well done!

Sentence 1 is a premise. The new law is a fact, a reality. The restaurant owner's plan, on the other hand, is a conclusion she drew on the basis of the new law.

Sentence 1 is a premise. The new law is a fact, a reality.

Impossible!

Every argument must include at least one premise.

While there are arguments that consist of premises only, without a conclusion, this is not one of them. At least one of these sentences includes a conclusion.

Sentence 1
Sentence 2
Sentences 1 and 2
Both sentences are premises
