I am little confused about this usage.. particularly, the "same .. as are" construction.

planting the same crops as are planted on large farms

The 'small farmer' is singular. So we can cancel out all options which uses 'they' to refer to the farmer.
So B,D,E are out.

We are left with A & C.
(A) planting the same crops as are planted on large farms will lead to economic disaster for the small farmer, who

(C) economic disaster will result from planting the same crops as large farms to the small farmer, who
C is badly formed.

A is the correct answer.

I have the same concern. Please kindly explain the construction. How come "are" is placed in the sentence

Hi Skamal,

Yes sort of. A long wordy version of A would be something like

According to Booker T. Whatley's recent analysis, planting the same crops as those which are are planted on large farms will lead to economic disaster for the small farmer, who should plan a succession of high-value crops that will provide a year-round cash flow.

Hope that makes sense.

Option A.. Tricky one. Took me 3 minutes to figure out the answer.

"Small farmer" is singular . So B , D and E can be elimnated because all these options use they to refer to the farmer.
Between A and C , A is better as it shows the cause effect relationship in proper order . Also C is awkward .
