Federal agricultural programs aimed at benefiting one group whose livelihood depends on farming often end up harming another such group.
Which of the following statements provides support for the claim above?
I. An effort to help feed-grain producers resulted in higher prices for their crops, but the higher prices decreased the profits of livestock producers.
II. In order to reduce crop surpluses and increase prices, growers of certain crops were paid to leave a portion of their land idle, but the reduction was not achieved because improvements in efficiency resulted in higher production on the land in use.
III. Many farm workers were put out of work when a program meant to raise the price of grain provided grain growers with an incentive to reduce production by giving them surplus grain from government reserves.
(A) I, but not II and not III
(B) II, but not I and not III
(C) I and III, but not II
(D) II and III, but not I
(E) I, II and III

A should be. I supports the conclusion. II doesn't support the conclusion. III doesn't suport the conclusion, because the harmed group is the same group that recieves the aid.

A for me.

In my opinion, C is correct.

I. Helping one group by increasing the price of the grain led to reduction in the profit of livestock producers.

II. Doesnt harm any group as such.

III. Farm workers are harmed because of govt intervention. Farm workers lost their jobs as govt helped farmers by providing surplus grain.

I believe option I and III is analogous to the stimulus.

Therefore I pick C.

OA is C.

But I am not too convinced how statement 3 is supporting the claim that benefiting one group whose livelihood depends on farming often end up harming another such group. Can someone explain it.

Statement III is about a measure to benefit grain growers that ended up harming farm workers. So two different groups.
