I dunno I think its E as well. The other choice seem to support premises... This one is tough.

i pick A. all of the other sentences are premises, and the last sentence is a subsidiary conclusion(still a premise to the main conclusion).

look at the first few words of all the other sentences, "The reason for this is", "To see this", those are all phrases that introduce a premise.

this question is just made to throw people off because the conclusion is the first sentence when most people dont expect it to be there. also, the "thus" is a way to catch lazy people who think that just because it is a trigger word for introducing a conclusion that it is the main conclusion when in fact it is only a subsidiary one.
