A prominent investor who holds a large stake in the Burton Tool Company has recently claimed that the company is mismanaged, citing as evidence the company’s failure to slow down production in response to a recent rise in its inventory of finished products. It is doubtful whether an investors sniping at management can ever be an thing other than counterproductive, but in this case, it is clearly not justified. It is true that an increased inventory of finished products often indicates that production is outstripping demand, but in Burton's case it indicates no such thing. Rather, the increase in inventory Is entirely attributable to Products that have already been assigned to orders received from customers.
In the argument given, the two boldfaced portions play which of the following roles?
It is true that （诚然）后面是第一个boldface，but（但是） 后面是最终结论（it indicates no such thing，即第一个boldface不对），rather（而是）后面是第二个boldface，用来支持结论。
It is true that+反驳； but in Burton's case it indicates no such thing. Rather,这句话提示够明显了，特殊caes不是这样而是黑体2内容
结论句是but in this case, it is clearly not justified，那么可以排除CDE，AB对比，B说第二段黑体是澄清在第一段黑体里的一个阶段结论，不对，应该是反驳，所以选A
but in Burton's case it indicates no such thing. 这一句才是conclusion
结论应该是 "It is doubtful whether an investors sniping at management can ever be an thing other than counterproductive, but in this case, it is clearly not justified" 中的后半句
