Q8:
From 1980 to 1989, total consumption of fish in the country of Jurania increased by 4.5 percent, and total consumption of poultry products there increased by 9.0 percent. During the same period, the population of Jurania increased by 6 percent, in part due to immigration to Jurania from other countries in the region.

If the statements above are true, which of the following must also be true on the basis of them?

A. During the 1980’s in Jurania, profits of wholesale distributors of poultry products increased at a greater rate than did profits of wholesale distributors of fish.
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.
C. In 1989 Juranians consumed twice as much poultry as fish.
D. For a significant proportion of Jurania’s population, both fish and poultry products were a regular part of their diet during the 1980’s.
E. Per capita consumption of fish in Jurania was lower in 1989 than in 1980.

E.

total population increased by 6%, but consumption of fish increased by only 4.5%.

therefore, per capita consumption of fish has decreased.

E doesnt suggest it decreased... it only says the per capita consumption was lower in 1989 than 1980. that means it can be higher in some of the years....

Yeah, but in this type of question that's all you need. You know that that statement has to be true, and that's all the proof you need to choose E.

OA is "D".

D is definitely "out of scope".

How we can say that D must be true??? There is nothing mentioned in the passage about the food habits of the population.

I still vote for E which must be true from the information given the passage.

Any takers to explain the D??

LM, with all due respect, let the person who posted the Q reveal the OA. This will avoid confusion

Because of exactly the same logic, I will pick E.
