An additional question that I am inserting here due to the fact that the tables are already here:

and the correct is in a square, mine are in the circle

Can someone give explanation on this I couldn't understand

The question asks whether it is supported by each of the two tables. i.e. The statement should be supported by Table 1 AND Table 2. Even if one of the tables does not support the statement, the answer is No. This is analogous to the Logical AND function.

Questions/Statements in the red box, let’s consider them Stmt1, Stmt2, Stmt3.

Statement is SEPERATELY supported by the passage -

Statement is SEPERATELY supported by each of the 2 tables -
Stmt1 - No (Becasue no data available)
Stmt2 -No (Becasue no data available)
Stmt3 -No (Becasue no data available)

Clubbing them together for final answer -
Stmt1 -No
Stmt2 -No
Stmt3 -No

Can some one help me with this one ? Its the same set from the above passage mentioned ..

Both tables (in tabs 2 and 3) talk about Barras and meat consumption, but this question asks about pounds—that sends us to tab 3.
Read the key up at top. The table shows average monthly meat consumption (good, that’s what we want!) in pounds for a 4-person family. We want pounds. Do we want a 4-person family?
Nope. The question asks about the total consumption in pounds for the residents of Barras. We’re going to need to do a little calculating here.
In the 1000s, Barras’s average monthly consumption per 4-person family was 160 pounds. Per person, then, consumption was 160 /4 = 40 pounds. Hmm, now what?
We need to know the total number of residents in Barras in the 1000s. Where did they tell us that?
Right! Tab 1 gave some information about population at the end of the paragraph about Barras. The passage says that there were 400 residents, on average, in the AD 1000s.
400 residents multiplied by 40 pounds per resident is a total of 16,000 pounds.

Hi,

Please use table 2. The question is demanding us to assume 5% or more of a given food item. From AD 600 to AD 700, the proportion of grains increased from 10% to 15%. Here the overall consumption of a given food should be considered and not the overall food consumption increase.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,
Ari

Explanation is fine. I got 2nd and 3rd correct. However I still don't understand 1st one. We are not given data from 500 AD so how we can decide whether consumption of Meat in 600 AD >= or <= 5% of meat consumption in 500 AD?
