As dietitian for this 300-person school, I am concerned about the sudden shortage of beef. It seems that we will have to begin to serve fish as our main source of protein. Even though beef costs more per pound than fish, I except that the price I pay for protein will rise if I continue to serve the same amount of protein using fish as I did with beef.

The speaker makes which of the following assumptions?

A. fish is more expensive per pound than beef
B. students will soon be paying more for their meals
C. cattle ranchers make greater profit than fishermen
D. per measure of protein, fish is more expensive than beef
E. cattle are more costly to raise than fish.

Me too go with D.....
Cost : Beef > Fish (say 1:3)
Protein : Beef > Fish (say 1 : 4)
Per protein : Beef < Fish

I also have a doubt on E....
