We always have to be careful of getting new words in the conclusion.

The author makes a link: LESS YIELD to PROFITABILITY.

Think Carefully, If you produce something less, that doesn't mean you will make less profit. If demand is high and if you can sell the product at a much higher price, you may make more profit.

Option A addresses that issue. Options B and C are not focusing on the main topic of the conclusion.

the answer is A.

However, option "B" is a gmat trap of giving information that is false according to the question stem.
In the first sentence of the stem it is clearly mentioned either w.w or s.w - so the scope of the argument is strictly saying to chose one of them, not both.

[quote="pi10t"]Which of the following most logically completes the argument below?

Davison River farmers are currently deciding between planting winter wheat this fall or spring wheat next spring. Winter wheat and spring wheat are usually about equally profitable. Because of new government restrictions on the use of Davison River water for irrigation, per acre yields for winter wheat, though not for spring wheat, would be much lower than average. Therefore, planting spring wheat will be more profitable than planting winter wheat, since_______.


(A) the smaller-than-average size of a winter wheat harvest this year would not be compensated for by higher winter wheat prices

(B) new crops of spring wheat must be planted earlier than the time at which standing crops of winter wheat are ready to be harvested

(C) the spring wheat that farmers in the Davison River region plant is well adapted to the soil of the region

(D) spring wheat has uses that are different from those of winter wheat

(E) planting spring wheat is more profitable than planting certain other crops, such as rye

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Done by POE
By CPA Analysis
Conclusion -- spring wheat will be more profitable than winter wheat
Premise --- as per acre yeild winter wheat is much lower than average

A.) Sounds convincing -- talks about sizes and costs of winter wheat-- hold on for second
B.) Out of scope -- talks about time of harvesting -- so gone
C.) Irrelevant --- Doesnt make sense talks about soil fertility-- so eliminated
D.) Irrelevant --- talks about uses of plant-- so eliminated
E.) Out of Scope --- comparing spring wheat to other crops -- Irrelevant--- so eliminated
