A survey of food preferences by the school cafeteria showed that
casseroles, which were identical in every respect except the spice
used, received very different ratings. Therefore, we can expect in
the future to find no variation in the spice used.
Which assumption is a logical inference from the above passage?

A) If the preferred spice is not used, the buyer is usually willing
to accept another spice.

B) Casseroles differ significantly from each other with respect to
food value.

C) There is a single spice generally preferred in the casseroles
tested.

D) Menu descriptions of this dish should list all the ingredient.

E) Shoppers give more emphasis to flavor than to price in food
purchasing.

C.

Since there will be no variation in the spice used, it means that one particular spice is preferred by buyers of the casseroles.

A and C were close contenders:

With C, The argument compares OTHER foods with casseroles which have a different Spice. But in C they are comparing one casserole with another casserole.

In that case A may be a good choice. What say others??

Well I was debating between A and C.

C looks too good because : we dont know which casserole got the best rating. The new one of the old one? In anycase which ever gets higher rating will have a spice prefered by people. The later part of the argument says that there will not be change made in the spice contained in the casserole. It is verly logical that people preferred the old one.
