P: We could greatly reduce teh amount of sulfur dioxide our copper-smelling plan releses into the atmosphere by using a new process. The new process requires replacing our open furnances with closed ones and moving the copper from one furnance to the next in solid,not molten, form. However, not only is the new equipment expensvive to buy and install, but the new process also costs more to run than the current process, because the copper must be reheated after it has cooled. So overall, adopting the new process will cost much but bring the company no profit.
S: I agree with your overall conclusion, but disagree about one point you make, since the latest closed furnances are extermely fuel-efficient.
Question: The point about which S expresses disagree with P is:
Answer: whether the new copper-smelting process is more expensive to run than the current process.
Then, my question is how to understand S' response "I agree with your overall conclusion?"
