In the context of rural areas, land inequality is both a cause and effect of assets inequality.

Which of the following would best serve as an example for the above statement?

a. Small land holders make less profit on land than large holders.
b. Large land holders in rural areas exploit the small farmers and that has been the cause of naxalism.
c. Large land holders lobbies and corner major portions of agricultural inputs like fertilizers.
d. Large land holders are able to influence installation of irrigation facilities, and availability of more irrigational facilities enables large farmers to generate surplus and hence buy more land.
e. Large landholders enjoy economic security that enables them to invest more on land.

Can anyone explain why can’t we consider option E as the answer?

D is the only oprion that increases the divergenze between reach and poor. is pretty straightforward.

E says that landers have economic security but is not clear if this affects the other small landers. The first one could buy a land without give problems to the latters

We need to look for option where "Land" is both cause and effect
in D and E : Effect = buy/invest on land
Cause:
D: surplus generated due to availability of irrigation => land is the cause. Had there been no land, irrigation would not be helpful
E: economic security => we cannot be sure that economic security is due to land, it might be land owners have other source of income
