Food colouring can be a form of deception if it is used to make people think that a fruit is riper, fresher, or otherwise
healthier than it really is. This is because bright colours give the subconscious impression of healthy, ripe fruit, full
of antioxidants and phytochemicals. A variation of this strategy is to use packaging which obscures the true
colour of the foods contained within, such as red mesh bags containing yellow oranges or grapefruit, which then
appear to be a ripe orange or red.

Which of the following must be true on the basis of the statements above?

A) When buying fruits one must check the actual colouring of the fruit and not of its packaging

B) Food colouring is not always done with the intention of deceiving people

C) Consumers should avoid purchasing fruits wrapped in mesh bags because this most likely suggests that the
something is wrong with the fruit

D) Bright colouring is an accurate method of judging the freshness of a fruit

E) The presence of phytochemicals in a fruit will most likely dissuade consumers from buying that fruit

Since this is an Inference question, let’s look at each option and eliminate.

A. The argument never states this. In fact if the fruit has been coloured (in addition to being
placed in some kind of packaging), then even looking at the colour of the actual fruit may not
help

B. This can be inferred from the first sentence of the argument. Since this statement qualifies that
food colouring can be deceptive only when used for a particular purpose, it can be concluded
that food colouring may have other non-deceptive uses as well.

C. This may or may not be true but does not have to be true all the time

D. The argument in fact states the opposite

E. The argument states that fresh and ripe fruits are full of antioxidants and phytochemicals.
Then there is no reason why a fruit with phytochemicals should dissuade customers from
buying it
