A growing world population has caused growing concerns about increasing famine. The population in 2000 was 6 billion. Ten years later the population was 7 billion. There were also more people affected by famines in 2010 than in 2000. Furthermore, in each year from 2000 to 2010, when the world's population increased, so did the number of those affected by famine.

Based on the information given, which of the following is true?

A. From 2000 to 2010, when the world's population increased, the percentage of the population affected by famine also increased

B. If the population increased in 2005, then more people were affected by famine in 2005 than in 2004

C. If the population decreased in a particular year between 2000 and 2010, the number of those affected by famine also decreased in that year

D. There was greater concern about famine in 2010 than in 2000

E. The population increased in every year between 2000 to 2010

HIT KUDOS

A. From 2000 to 2010, when the world's population increased, the percentage of the population affected by famine also increased --- Not Necessary
An increase in number doesn't guarantee an increase in percentage. -- out

B. If the population increased in 2005, then more people were affected by famine in 2005 than in 2004
If we look at the last line of the para
in each year from 2000 to 2010, when the world's population increased, so did the number of those affected by famine
Guarantees an increase in number of those affected by famine whenever population increases

C. If the population decreased in a particular year between 2000 and 2010, the number of those affected by famine also decreased in that year
not necessary
decrease in population might also result in increase in those affected by famine

D. There was greater concern about famine in 2010 than in 2000
irrelevant

E. The population increased in every year between 2000 to 2010
no
not every year

So B
