Which of the following investigation is most likely to yield significant information that would help evaluate Kevin’s argument?

A. Comparing the value of Kevin’s crop damage to the average value of the crop damage at farms where fish-based fertilizer was not applied to the fields before planting
B. Determining the extent to which fish-based fertilizer increases crop yield
C. Comparing the long-term effects of Kevin’s crop damage to the long-term effects of other crop damage in Baker County
D. Comparing the severity of crop damage at Kevin’s farm with the crop damage at agriculturally similar Baker County farms where fish-based fertilizer was not applied to fields before planting
E. Determining the percentage of Baker County farms that applied fish-based fertilizer to their fields before planting

After a plague of locusts attacked every crop in Baker County, Kevin Kevinson claimed that the severity of damage to his crops was due to the fish-based fertilizer he applied to his fields before planting.

Which of the following investigation is most likely to yield significant information that would help evaluate Kevin’s argument?

A. Comparing the value of Kevin’s crop damage to the average value of the crop damage at farms where fish-based fertilizer was not applied to the fields before planting - this would not help to determine if usage of fish based fertilizers was the reason behind damage of crops
B. Determining the extent to which fish-based fertilizer increases crop yield - no mention about the damage caused by them
C. Comparing the long-term effects of Kevin’s crop damage to the long-term effects of other crop damage in Baker County - same as B
D. Comparing the severity of crop damage at Kevin’s farm with the crop damage at agriculturally similar Baker County farms where fish-based fertilizer was not applied to fields before planting - if these farms did not suffer any crop damage, then fertilizers would be the likely culprit. Hence, this is the correct choice
E. Determining the percentage of Baker County farms that applied fish-based fertilizer to their fields before planting - does not mention anything about damage
