there is a similar question in which the answer weakens the argument. Ones should be careful when they read the question and options.

Gives us a reason why they have to import meat and grain .
IF they consume more meat and do not decrease their consumption of grain then they will import .

E is correct - The statement properly identifies the assumption that those who begin to eat meat do not then greatly decrease their direct consumption of grains.

You'll see it right away when you negate "E".
- (NEGATED): People in Gortland who increase their consumption of meat will radically decrease their consumption of grain.
> Remember, CONCLUSION: since per capita income continues to rise, whereas domestic grain production will not increase, Gortland will soon have to import either grain or meat or both
* BREAK CONCLUSION: What if they increased one thing (meat) but radically decreased another (grain)?
