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.

(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.

(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.

(E) Large-scale corn producers do not sell their harvests directly on the farm or at roadside stands, farmer's markets or local stores.

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..

I agree with you Chetan2u. Let's wait to hear from the experts with EmpowerGMAT. I believe this is their question.

A. Small-scale sweet corn producers could place considerable investment in harvesting equipment and packing and hydro-cooling facilities.:

A 'MUST BE TRUE' STATEMENT, MOST LIKELY CORRECT ANS BASIS POE.

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.:

WORD 'REQUIRES' IN THE STIMULUS INDICATES COMPULSION AND NOT OPTION.

C. High-quality sweet corn is the most popular type of corn on the market.:

IRRELEVANT. VERY POPULAR VEGETABLE DOES NOT MEAN MOST POPULAR CORN.

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.:

WORD 'MOST CONSIDERABLE' IS WRONG.

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 CAN DEDUCE FROM STIMULUS THAT SOME PRODUCE IS SOLD TO LARGE DISTRIBUTORS. BUT BASIS THIS INFORMATION, WE CANNOT CONCLUDE ANYTHING ON LOCAL SALE OF PRODUCE.

This is either a very bad question or a very tough question. Anyways, lets use the Process of Elimination method.

A. Small-scale sweet corn producers could place considerable investment in harvesting equipment and packing and hydro-cooling facilities.

If the small-scale corn producers want to expand their businesses and become large-scale, they can place the considerable investment. If they don't want to, then no need.

A is neither wrong nor right.

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.

No, they don't have an "option". They have to make the huge investments if they want to be a large scale producer.

B is wrong.

C. High-quality sweet corn is the most popular type of corn on the market.

Most popular type? No ways. Too much exaggeration.

C is wrong.

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.

Most considerable investment? Nope. Maybe wheat or potato farmers make much more investment, who knows? This is again an exaggeration.

D is wrong.

E. Large-scale corn producers do not sell their harvests directly on the farm or at roadside stands, farmer's markets or local stores.

The answer says that there are terminal markets and supermarket distribution centres. But it does not necessarily imply that they cannot sell in local stores or farmer markets. Big brand company products are found almost everywhere.

E is either wrong or right or a bit of both.

Between A and E, definitely A is a bit more right than wrong than E is.
