A it is. If the conclusion is that food will fall of edges, then its presupposed that Cylindrical refrigerators are not available.

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.


Premise - Refrigerated food gets spoiled, hence we need to have round-shelved refrigerators.

Argument - Things would fall off the shelve's edges into the rear corners

GAP IN ARGUMENT - The round shelved refrigerators would have corners/rear gaps. We do not know exactly how these refrigerators are designed. So we need to look for an answer that explains this gap in the argument.

Option A best explains it in my opinion!

Hope it helps.

Vishnu

started my CR :)
here i go :
from E=> this is no where an assumption. wrng choice
from D: this looks some sort of a conclusive statement but not an assumption.
from C: this is out of scope, we do not know about other designs so this is a distortion.
from B: this can't be assumed so wrong choice.
from A: this is a solution, we can not have cylindrical shape as interior and this is assumed from the 2nd part of the statements.


so i went with A,
when things dont work from A to E, we can always come from e to A :)

"presupposed" almost made me mark the wrong answer... although it did waste some time in understanding....

A) The argument is against the round shelves as it says that the food would still be wasted falling in the corners of the refrigerators.... here it assumes that round cornered refrigerator would not have a cylindrical shape... thus A is the answer...
B) Having a window does not relate to the wasting of food by having round shelves... Out of scope
C) We are talking of only two designs regular and cylindrical here... its a broader scope covering all the designs... ( actually was confused between A and C but chose A in the end)
D) If refrigerators are perfectly designed then why is there a problem of food getting wasted lying in the corners...
E) It actually supports the argument of round shelves rather than opposing it...
