Hi,

Please use table 2. The question is demanding us to assume 5% or more of a given food item. From AD 600 to AD 700, the proportion of grains increased from 10% to 15%. Here the overall consumption of a given food should be considered and not the overall food consumption increase.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,
Ari

Obviously, Anyone can provide them the grain, the point is Barras imported as the consumtion was up the target 5% to trigger that assumption

An additional question that I am inserting here due to the fact that the tables are already here:

and the correct is in a square, mine are in the circle

I think it asks that the facts be distinctly shown by both the passage and tables, therefore the questions have been answered as no in each case.

Had the question been, Was seafood a major chunk of the diet plan for Barras? then the answer would have been yes.
