We have no clue about the cost or the selling price of the poultry or fish. Increased consumption does not mean increased profits.

B. For people who immigrated to Jurania during the 1980’s , fish was less
likely to be a major part of their diet than was poultry.

We dont know if the original inhabitants of Jurania increased consumption were responsible for the increased consumption or was it the immigrants. For all we know the immigrants were feeding only on fish and the original inhabitants only on poultry.

C. In 1989 Juranians consumed twice as much poultry as fish.

The arguments gives increase in percentages not numbers.

D. For a significant of jurania’s population, both fish and poultry products were a regular part of their diet during the 1980’s.

There is no information about the regularity or irregularity of the fish and poultry consumption. Maybe they ate all the fish/poultry in one month.

E. Per capita consumption of fish in Jurania was lower in 1989 than in 1980.

This one is right on money. Just treat it like a data sufficiency problem and plug in numbers. You will find that the per capita consumption decreased from 1980 to 1989.
