For Production of Sugar, the rank is 1. The corresponding Production World Share % is 21%. Since the ranking of Brazil is 1 in sugar production, the rest of the countries produce less sugar than Brazil. This implies that Production World Share % of any other country is < 21%.

Shouldn't the 3rd answer be "NO" as for Beef, Brazil is #1 exporter but produces only 16%?

So because Brazil is #1 in sugar export, no other country has greater than it's 21% of the worldshare. 25% is 1/4th of the world share, so since Brazil is number 1, no other country can produce 25%. Answer is yes.

For the second answer, find all world producers that are <20, of which there are 5. The first, beef, is produced at 16%, which is les than 20, but Brazil is the number 1 exporter of that. That contradicts the statement, so this is No.

For three, again No, along similar lines to 2.
