Strengthen or MSS

"The statement above, if true, most strongly support which one of the following?"

I can never tell if I should answer this as a strengthening question or as a MSS question. Could someone better explain how to approach this type of question stem?

    @emli1000 Seems like a classic MSS... a twin of "Which one of the following is most strongly supported by the statements above, if they are true?" given in the 7sage question stems for MSS.

    Just ask yourself - what supports what?

    If the correct answer choice is supposed to support the stimulus, then it's a strengthen.

    if the premises are supposed to support the correct answer choice, then it's an MSS.

    In this case, we're being asked about a situation where the "above" statements (aka the stimulus) supports one of "the following" (aka the answer choices). Hence, MSS.
