A. Small-scale sweet corn producers could place considerable investment in harvesting equipment and packing and hydro-cooling facilities.
B. Large-scale sweet corn producers have the option of making a considerable investment in harvesting equipment and packing and hydro-cooling facilities to prepare shipments to terminal markets or supermarket distribution centers.
C. High-quality sweet corn is the most popular type of corn on the market.

Hi Skywalker18, [color=#00a651]Could you please recheck the OA. IMO it should be D.

High-quality sweet corn is a very popular vegetable. Small-scale production can be sold directly on the farm or at roadside stands, farmer's markets, or local stores. Large-scale production requires a considerable investment in harvesting equipment and packing and hydro-cooling facilities to prepare shipments to terminal markets or supermarket distribution centers.

Which of the following conclusions can most properly be drawn from the information above?

A. Small-scale sweet corn producers could place considerable investment in harvesting equipment and packing and hydro-cooling facilities. -Nowhere the passage states that low quality sweet corn producers can/cannot invest in anything.
B. Large-scale sweet corn producers have the option of making a considerable investment in harvesting equipment and packing and hydro-cooling facilities to prepare shipments to terminal markets or supermarket distribution centers. -Large scale production requires mandatory investment
C. High-quality sweet corn is the most popular type of corn on the market. -Most popular? exaggerated
D. Some large-scale producers of sweet corn are among those vegetable producers that make the most considerable investment in harvesting equipment and packing equipment. -Correct. Large scale production requires investment. Although this isn't totally inferrable from the passage (usage of most raises question on this choice), the choice is best among the lot.
E. Large-scale corn producers do not sell their harvests directly on the farm or at roadside stands, farmer's markets or local stores. -We don't know where they sell their produce. They might sell corn just outside the farm in the same way big companies like Britannia sell biscuits just outside their factories[/color]

Hi..

Skywalker18 I think a very poor Q and all 39 that is 100% answering it wrongly proves it.
even if the OA is marked wrongly, there is no choice fit to be an answer.
Conclusion is something that fits in the end of para and does not merely repeat something in para..

either there is typo OR the reason is these lines have been just picked up from an article and some conclusion is forced upon the para..
