Editorial: Consumers in North America think that by drinking frozen concentrated orange juice, they are saving energy, because it takes fewer truckloads to transport it than it takes to transport an equivalent amount of not-from-concentrate juice. But they are mistaken, for the amount of energy required to concentrate the juice is far greater than the energy difference in the juices’ transport.

Which of the following, if true, would provide the greatest additional support for the editorial’s conclusion?

(A) Freezer trucks use substantially more energy per mile driven than do any other types of trucks.

(B) Frozen juice can be stored for several years, while not-from-concentrate juice lasts a much shorter time.

(C) Oranges grown in Brazil make up an increasing percentage of the fruit used in not-from-concentrate juice production.

(D) A serving of not-from-concentrate juice takes up to six times more space than a serving of frozen concentrated juice.

(E) Though frozen concentrated juice must be kept at a lower temperature, not-from-concentrate juice is far more sensitive to small temperature fluctuations.

The question mentions '"amount of energy required to *concentrate*"but not freeze whereas the transport part involved the freezing bit also.

We are looking for an answer that SUPPORTS the conclusion, which is that [consumers in NA who think that they are saving energy by drinking frozen concentrated OJ] are mistaken.

The editorial discusses two factors: transportation energy and concentration energy. Some consumers think concentrated OJ uses less energy because fewer truckloads are needed to transport it. This is evidence that concentrated OJ has lower transportation costs than non-concentrated OJ. However, the author claims that the energy required to concentrate the OJ is greater than the energy saved by using fewer trucks for transportation. In other words, the apparent energy savings related to transportation are outweighed by the energy need to concentrate the OJ.

Quote:
A. Freezer trucks use substantially more energy per mile driven than do any other types of trucks.

According to some consumers, concentrated OJ uses less transportation energy than non-concentrated OJ because fewer truckloads are needed to transport it. However, if the trucks needed to transport frozen, concentrated OJ use more energy per mile than other types of trucks, the apparent savings in transportation energy might not be that great. This is evidence that the apparent energy savings related to transportation might not be as high as the NA consumers think. This supports the author's conclusion that those consumers are mistaken.

Question Type: Strengthen

Main Point: Energy required to concentrate orange juice > Difference between the energy required to transport the 2 different juices.
We should provide additional support to the above point.

A. Freezer trucks use substantially more energy per mile driven than do any other types of trucks. - Correct. More energy is lost to transport the frozen concentrated orange juice. Hence energy required for concentrated orange juice >> Transportation energy difference.

B. Frozen juice can be stored for several years, while not-from-concentrate juice lasts a much shorter time. - Incorrect. Out of scope.

C. Oranges grown in Brazil make up an increasing percentage of the fruit used in not-from-concentrate juice production. - Incorrect. Irrelevant.

D. A serving of not-from-concentrate juice takes up to six times more space than a serving of frozen concentrated juice. - Incorrect. Irrelevant.

E. Though frozen concentrated juice must be kept at a lower temperature, not-from-concentrate juice is far more sensitive to small temperature fluctuations. - Incorrect. This statement again doesn't provide any information about the energy required.

I am confused between A and B.

In B, Since frozen OJ lasts longer than non frozen, wouldn't it require more energy to preserve frozen OJ, hence strengthening the editorials conclusion? where am I going wrong with this logic?

@gmatninja, Experts,

Could you please explain why A is correct ?
The question mentions '"amount of energy required to *concentrate*"but not freeze whereas the transport part involved the freezing bit also.

Thankyou
Now that I think of it, i dont know why I had any confusion. Sometimes, I am complicate problems myself thinking that there has to be some trick to the question and the answer can't be so easy.

Editorial: Consumers in North America think that by drinking frozen concentrated orange juice, they are saving energy, because it takes fewer truckloads to transport it than it takes to transport an equivalent amount of not-from-concentrate juice. But they are mistaken, for the amount of energy required to concentrate the juice is far greater than the energy difference in the juices’ transport. < (Conclusion in bold)

Which of the following, if true, would provide the greatest additional support for the editorial’s conclusion?
-> REPHRASE: STRENGTHEN THE IDEA THAT CONSUMERS DO NOT SAVE ENERGY BY DRINKING FROZEN CONCENTRATED OJ.

A. Freezer trucks use substantially more energy per mile driven than do any other types of trucks.
- Passage reads "...drinking frozen concentrated orange juice". If (A) were the case, consumers are not saving energy b/c it takes a ton more energy/mile to transport frozen OJ.

B. Frozen juice can be stored for several years, while not-from-concentrate juice lasts a much shorter time.
- We're not interesting in not-from-concentrate juice. Further, this does not address energy consumption at all

C. Oranges grown in Brazil make up an increasing percentage of the fruit used in not-from-concentrate juice production.
- out of scope. who cares where oranges are grown? nevertheless, does not address energy consumption at all

D. A serving of not-from-concentrate juice takes up to six times more space than a serving of frozen concentrated juice.
- out of scope. who cares about (shelf) space? does not address energy consumption at all

E. Though frozen concentrated juice must be kept at a lower temperature, not-from-concentrate juice is far more sensitive to small temperature fluctuations.
- out of scope. who cares how sensitive not-from-concentrate juice is? does not address energy consumption at all


Easy to see how the Answer is A. By constantly remembering what the Conclusion is (and whether your goal is to Strengthen/Weaken it), you're better able to see which A/C does not even address the issue you need to solve for

Kudos please if you find this helpful :)

The answer is A
The argument talks about the people of north america that have wrong notion that they are saving energy by having concentrated frozen juices .
Author points out that to produce concentrated juices energy requirement is high and surpass energy used in transportation pf large volumes of not so concentrated juices.
A is only valid option as it talks how energy used is more in concentrated juices.

I selected A on this one as the option gave clear idea about more energy needed to transport "COJ" per mile, however, one could have fallen for option B as well "(B) Frozen juice can be stored for several years, while not-from-concentrate juice lasts a much shorter time."

GMATNinja, Experts, Pls guide if my reasoning is correct:-
Option B is wrong because (1) Frozen juice can be stored - can does not mean necessarily the energy required to conserve is more. Whatif "COJ" is consumed in less time. (2) The option does not specifically mention anything relating to "energy" hence we cannot assume anything here.

Pls provide your inputs about option B

CAMANISHPARMAR, your second reason looks good.

We need something that supports the idea that the consumers, who think COJ saves energy, are wrong.

(B) simply tells us that COJ can be stored for a longer period of time. How does that impact overall energy saving? Perhaps more regular OJ goes to waste because it spoils faster (this would help the consumer's argument and hurt the author's). But without further information, we have no idea whether (B) hurts or helps the author's argument.

Hi,

Thank You for the posts. GMATNinja, I need help in understanding the first answer choice.

Aren't we making an assumption here that frozen concentrated juice required freezer trick and non from concentrate juice requires non freezer trucks? Please let me know if it okay to make such an assumption.

And I also wanted to understand does not from concentrate means fresh orange juice that people can extract at their home. ( Does it technically means we are just transporting oranges)

Please let me know.

Thank You

Regarding answer choice (A): the passage contrasts the amount of truckloads required to transport "frozen concentrated orange juice" to the truckloads required for "not-from-concentrate juice." From this, we know that the concentrated OJ is frozen before it’s transported, so it is completely reasonable to assume that freezer trucks are required for concentrated OJ, and other types of trucks are used for not-from-concentrate OJ.

For a more thorough breakdown of answer choice (A), please see this post.

Along the same lines, the passage contrasts two different types of juice, so we know that the "not-from-concentrate" product is orange juice, not actual oranges.

I hope this helps!
