By analyzing the garbage of a large number of average-sized households, a group of modern urban anthropologists has found that a household discards less food the more standardizedâ€”made up of canned and prepackaged foodsâ€”its diet is. The more standardized a householdâ€™s diet is, however, the greater the quantities of fresh produce the household throws away.
Which of the following can be properly inferred from the passage?
(A) An increasing number of households rely on a highly standardized diet.
(B) The less standardized a householdâ€™s diet is, the more nonfood waste the household discards.
(C) The less standardized a householdâ€™s diet is, the smaller is the proportion of fresh produce in the householdâ€™s food waste.
(D) The less standardized a householdâ€™s diet is, the more canned and prepackaged foods the household discards as waste.
(E) The more fresh produce a household buys, the more fresh produce it throws away.
More Stand Food -- > Less canned and packaged food is wasted
More Stand Food -- > More fresh food is wasted
Less Stand Food -- > More canned and packaged food is wasted
Less Stand Food -- > Less fresh food is wasted
I have 2 questions:
1. In option B, what does nonfood waste signify?
2. Why option C is better than option D?
