Hey, just want to let you know I missed this one and would like to have an explanation on this one.
Compared to a carnivore, an herbivore needs relatively few pounds of plants as food to be able to produce a pound of protein. Since carnivores feed on both herbivores and other carnivores, the accumulated consumption of thousands of pounds of plants is needed for a carnivore to produce a pound of protein.
This argument is best completed by which of the following? A) herbivores produce protein faster than carnivores B) a pound of carnivore protein has more food value than a pound of herbivore protein C) the impact of people on plant resources would be much less if they substituted chicken for tuna in their diets D) carnivores' diets consist of more plants than meat E) chickens are a cheaper source of food than tuna

This one is really weird.
Like dj I am not sure whether I got the Q correct.
However I would go for A
My guess is the metabolism to produce protein is not the same for herbs and carns. Carns need to intake much more food in qty to produce the same amt of protein as herbs. Hence herbs produce proteins faster than carns ...
B is an unsubstantiated claim.
C is wrong because chickens are hardly representative of all herbivores.
D â€“ ultimately, carnivores eat meat when they gobble up herbivores and/or other carnivores, so D is out.
E is out of scope.
We are left with A.
Well I am not sure if I understood Choice B or not. Are they talking about the value of food. If the carnis hog more they are eating more money to produce same pound of protein. Going through the flow of argument I think B can logically end it. A may not be true since herbis may eat and then wait for some time to produce proteins.
OA is C. Feel free to discuss how C can be it because there is no explanation given. I'll try to analyze this one a bit later because I'm still concerned with another question right now.
I kinda toyed with the idea that C could be a possible answer but frankly I donâ€™t see how chickens can be representative of all herbivores and how their impact on plant resources is that serious (Iâ€™m not comfortable with â€œmuch less.â€
