Hello.

Could someone, please, explain the 3rd for me? I am sure I got it right.
"Of the commodities in the table for which Brasil ranks first in the world exports, Brazil produces more than 20% of world's supply".

Had the question read "Of the commodities in the table for which Brasil produces more than 20% of world's supply, Brasil ranks first in the world exports", I would have admitted to have chosen the wrong option.

Thank you.

Thank you.

I would have sorted on the basis of 'Exports, World Rank'.
According to the table , the commodities for which Brasil ranks first in the world exports = Beef, Chicken, Coffee, Orange Juice & Sugar .
The production % (world share) for these commodities are : 16, 15, 40, 56 & 21 (in sequence)

Hope this helps.

I generally miss a lot..... but in this case I am kind of sure...... still ‘soybean’ seems wrong to me.......probably some experts can put some light on this ??

That's ok. Maybe I should have provided an official approach.
