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. .
A) While this may be true, the implication of the passage is that spice makes a big difference and would lead to the selection of another dish rather than the same casserole with a different spice. B) While probably true, it is unrelated to the passage, which gives no logical basis for any inference about food value. C) While it may seem unlikely, it is indeed an assumption logically consistent with the passage. If a particular spice was preferred by the majority of the people surveyed, this would explain why the cafeteria would start using a single spice based on the survey results. This is the correct answer. D) This statement is not directly relevant to the passage. E) This is not relevant to the passage, which makes no mention of price, and provides no basis for logical inferences about price.
