Exports of United States wood pulp will rise considerably during this year. The reason for the rise is that the falling value of the dollar will make it cheaper for paper manufacturers in Japan and Western Europe to buy American wood pulp than to get it from any other source.

Which of the following is an assumption made in drawing the conclusion above?

(A) Factory output of paper products in Japan and Western Europe will increase sharply during this year.

(B) The quality of the wood pulp produced in the United States would be adequate for the purposes of Japanese and Western European paper manufacturers.

(C) Paper manufacturers in Japan and Western Europe would prefer to use wood pulp produced in the United States if cost were not a factor.

(D) Demand for paper products made in Japan and Western Europe will not increase sharply during this year.

(E) Production of wood pulp by United States companies will not increase sharply during this year.

I think B. If the quality in the U.S. isn't good enough, then there is no reason to expect an increase in U.S. export sales. This assumption is thus critical to the conclusion.

B.

C seems to be an assumption, but its not necessary.

The conclusion: the falling value of the dollar will make it cheaper for paper manufacturers in Japan and Western Europe to buy American wood pulp than to get it from any other source.

(A) Factory output of paper products in Japan and Western Europe will increase sharply during this year. (Irrelevant to argument – Eliminate it)

(B) The quality of the wood pulp produced in the United States would be adequate for the purposes of Japanese and Western European paper manufacturers.(Yes – This supports the conclusion – Hold it)

(C) Paper manufacturers in Japan and Western Europe would prefer to use wood pulp produced in the United States if cost were not a factor. (This is already stated as part of the conclusion – Eliminate it)

(D) Demand for paper products made in Japan and Western Europe will not increase sharply during this year. (Irrelevant to conclusion)

(E) Production of wood pulp by United States companies will not increase sharply during this year. (Irrelevant)
