The quality of unrefined olive oil is not actually defined in terms of acidity, yet extensive tests have shown that the less free oleic acid an unrefined olive oil contains per liter, the higher its quality. The proportion of free oleic acid that an olive oil contains is an accurate measure of the oil’s acidity.

If the statements above are all true, which of the following conclusions is best supported by them?
A. When an olive oil is refined, the concentration of oleic acid in the oil is reduced.
B. The quality of an unrefined olive oil can be determined only by accurately
measuring its acidity.
C. If an unrefined olive oil is intermediate in acidity between two other unrefined
olive oils, it will also be intermediate between them in quality.
D. Free oleic acid is the only acid that unrefined olive oil contains.
E. People who judge the quality of unrefined olive oils actually judge those oils by their acidity, which the judges can taste.

Answer B and D seems extreme. Answer E seems out side of the scope. I am between A and C. I think I am going to chose C because the statement mentioned about unrefined oil not refined as mentioned in A.

So, C for me.

1) - quality of olive oil inversely proportional to free oleic acid

The proportion of free oleic acid that an olive oil contains is an accurate measure of the oil’s acidity.

2) - acidity directly proportional to proportion of free oleic acid

If the statements above are all true, which of the following conclusions is best supported by them?

From 1 and 2 therefore, Higher oleic acid ---> lower quality. So, if intermediate oleic acid --> intermediate quality.

Concur with C

I say C for this.

A: We are talking about unrefined olive oil.
B: argument says that other methods are used.
D: Maybe, but we can't determine this from the passage.
E: Goes against passage.
