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)Regrigerators would not be made so that their interior space is cylindrical

b)regrigerators 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.

A?

The argument is assuming that the interior space would not be cylindrical. Ig you negate this the the food would not end up in the rear edges of the refrigerator.

Why is it that the whole thing makes so much sense when someone on this forum explains it? To save my life, I could not make sense of what A meant. I kept thinking ,"well the refrigerators are already made, so what the hell does it matter as far as the shelves........" never mind. I think I just stared at it too long .

The argument suddenly tells us the rotating refrig. will have the same flaw...assumes it can't be designed correctly for rotating shelves

A captures this
