2. Organically grown produce is more costly to raise than non
organically grown produce. Organically grown produce tastes better
than non organically grown produce. Organically grown produce is
raised on ly on small farms, making the supply of organically grown
produce much smaller tahn the supply of non organically grown produce.
Which of the following can be inferred from the statements above?
a. Produce than tastes better costs more to raise.
b. The smaller supply of organic produce makes it more expensive to
c. The difficulties of raising better tasting produce make it more
costly to raise.
d. The higher the cost of raising organically grown produce limits
e. Lack of economies of scale makes organically grown produce more
costly to raise.
All the choices B C D E can be refuted. Just looking at the stem of the problem and assuming that there are only two types of produces ( Organic and Non Organic ) and Organic always tastes better than Non organic only A can be infered.
Choice A is correct. choices B, C, D and E may all be true, but they
are not logically inferrable from the statements provided. Choice B
refers to the cost to consumers, which is not mentioned in the
statements. Choice C refers to the difficulties of raising better
tasting produce, which is also not mentioned. Choice D posits a
plausible causal link between the high cost of raising organically
grown produce and its limited supply , but this link is not
established in the statements. Choice E posits a plausible causal
link between the fact that orginically grown produce is raised on
small farms and the cost of raising it, but this link is not
established by the statements. IF organically grown produce tastes
better , AND organically grown produce costs more to raise, THEN we
can logically infer that the better-tasting produce costs more to
