### HideShow timer Statistics

In theory, Paupua New Guinea could be a substantial exporter of tropical crops. In actuality, it is not. THe reason is that 97% of all land is owned by clans and cannot be bought or sold by individuals, and thus the kinds of realignment of properties that would be necessary to acheive maximum production for export have been impossible to achieve.

The answer to which of the following questions would be most relevant to evaluating the adequacy of the explanation given above?

a) Who owns the 3% of the land in Paupua New Guinea that is not owned by clans?

b) What percentage of Paupua New Guinea's current produciton of tropical crops is consumed within the country?

c) How much longer is land ownership by clans expected to remain the prevailing cultural pattern in Paupua New Guinea?

d) Which of the tropical crops currently grown in Paupua New Guinea could be exported if there were a surplus for export?

e) How does Paupua New Guinea's current production capacity for tropical crops compare with the maximum capacity that property realignment would make possible?

I thought it was C, because knowing when that land would be up for sale could start the process of buying/selling/realigning.

agree its E. It talks about production capacity, it seeks to answer whether post realignment of land will boost production.

E.
The reasoning in the question stem talks about export of tropical fruits as a function of land holding patterns optimal for maximizing production.
