Exports of United States wood pulp will rise considerably during this year. The reason for the rise is that the falling value of the dollar will make it cheaper for paper manufacturers in Japan and Western Europe to buy American wood pulp than to get it from any other source.
Which of the following is an assumption made in drawing the conclusion above?

(A) Factory output of paper products in Japan and Western Europe will increase sharply during this year.
(B) The quality of the wood pulp produced in the United States would be adequate for the purposes of Japanese and Western European paper manufacturers.
(C) Paper manufacturers in Japan and Western Europe would prefer to use wood pulp produced in the United States if cost were not a factor.
(D) Demand for paper products made in Japan and Western Europe will not increase sharply during this year.
(E) Production of wood pulp by United States companies will not increase sharply during this year

B.

If quality of pulp does not match, irrespective of price, Japan and Western Europe will not buy pulp from USA.

I will go with C. Do the negate test. IF Japan and Western Europe do not prefer the quality of wood pulp from US then it does not matter if dollar drops and it becomes cheaper

IMO C. reduced dollar will give japan/western EU to buy more wood pulp for the same amount of their money. So in a way, wood pulp price is down.

what is the OA?
