Of the countries that were the worldтАЩs twenty largest exporters in 1953, four had the same share of total world exports in 1984 as in 1953. Theses countries can therefore serve as models for those countries that wish to keep their share of the global export trade stable over the years.

Which of the following, if true, casts the most serious doubt on the suitability of those four countries as models in the sense described?

(A) Many countries wish to increase their share of world export trade, not just keep it stable.
(B) Many countries are less concerned with exports alone than with he balance between exports and imports.
(C) With respect to the mix of products each exports, the four countries are very different from each other.
(D) Of the four countries, two had a much larger, and two had a much smaller, share of total world exports in 1970 than in 1984.
(E) The exports of the four countries range from 15 percent to 75 percent of the total national output

Guys, I have a doubt.

Is it ok to choose D despite the fact that nothing is mentioned in the stem about the year 1970. Is it ok to assume something that is not given in the passage?

Conclusion: Theses countries can therefore serve as models for those countries that wish to keep their share of the global export trade stable over the years

If their share of global export trade varied wildly between 1953 and 1984 (despite the fact that they were back at the same level in those 2 years), can we say that they can serve as model of stability?
1953: 10k
1970: 5k
1984: 10k
Is that stable? :wink:
