20 percent of the leaf and small-stem material is singular. Hence, D is correct (Shatters and Falls)

Dear sriamlan,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

As a general rough-and-ready rule
X% of [singular] is also singular
X% of [plural] is also plural

Twenty percent of the water is . . .
Twenty percent of the students are . . .


Does this make sense?
Mike :-)

(D) the most nutritious parts of the plant, shatters and falls

(E) parts of the plant which are the most nutritious, have shattered and fallen


SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN
April 1975
Volume 232, Issue 4


The traditional procedure for harvesting a forage crop such as alfalfa usually entails making three trips through the field: one to cut the crop, one (sometimes bypassed) to rake it so that it will dry more thoroughly and one to pick it up. The procedure results in certain losses; for example, as much as 20 percent of the dried leaf and small-stem material, which is the most nutritious part of the plant, can shatter and fall to the ground. The proteins and amino acids of forage crops are not fully utilized in another sense: since such crops can be digested only by ruminants, the nutrients in them are not directly available to other animals, including man. In an effort to exploit the full potential of forage crops an interdisciplinary group at the University of Wisconsin has developed a program for extracting proteins and amino acids from such plants in the form of juice, producing a concentrate that is suitable for a wide range of animals and leaving a solid residue that is still nutritious for ruminants.
