The reason much refrigerated food spoils is that it ends up out of sight at the back of the shelf. So why not have round shelves that rotate? Because such rotating shelves would have just the same sort of drawback, since things would fall off the shelves' edges into the rear corners.
Which of the following is presupposed in the argument against introducing rotating shelves?
(A) Refrigerators would not be made so that their interior space is cylindrical.
(B) Refrigerators would not be made to have a window in front for easy viewing of their contents without opening the door.
(C) The problem of spoilage of refrigerated food is not amenable to any solution based on design changes.
(D) Refrigerators are so well designed that there are bound to be drawbacks to any design change.
(E) Rotating shelves would be designed to rotate only while the refrigerator door was open.
Says the spoiling of food is "not amenable" to any design change and that is what is presupposed! The food spoils beocz of bing kept away from the sight.

"since things would fall off the shelves' edges into the rear corners"
The stem implies that there will always be edges in the design. ie, a cylindrical interior is not considered. If the interior was cylindrical that would imply no edges and so no way for things to fall in to corners.
