Tab 1
“An archaeological team has been excavating three ancient village sites—Barras, Agna, and Cussaia—looking in particular at kitchen waste dumps as a way to understand the villages’ dietary patterns and trading relationships. What follows are brief summaries of their findings.

“Barras: The best data come from stratified finds in this oceanside village, which was inhabited from AD 600 to 1300 and was the only one of the three villages to produce seafood, its main dietary item. Though Barras residents hunted on land and raised crops, this provided relatively small amounts of food. As Barras’s overall prosperity rose, there was more food available per person, and its population increased from an average of 100 residents in the AD 600s to 400 residents in the AD 1000s to 600 residents in the AD 1200s.

“Agna: Agna was established in an inland forest around AD 800 and its residents mainly hunted but also ate considerable amounts of fruit, nuts, and other forest-vegetable products. They also traded meat to Barras for other goods. With no open fields, Agna grew no grain.

“Cussaia: Predating Barras, Cussaia depended heavily on raising grain crops and eventually obtained seafood and meat via trade. It traded directly only with Barras, because a mountain range separated it from Agna, though some products may have been traded between Agna and Cussaia via Barras.

“Additionally, there is no evidence that any other village traded with Barras, Agna, or Cussaia prior to AD 1300.”

1. "As Barras’s overall prosperity rose, there was more food available per person, and its population increased from an average of 100 residents in the AD 600s to 400 residents in the AD 1000s to 600 residents in the AD 1200s."
-> we are only talking about averages - is this the reason for NO?
2. It says in the text "Agna grew no grain", so why should it be NO?
3. It says in the text "It traded directly only with Barras", so why should it be NO?

I think this is an incorrect question on GMAT prep, all the answers should be "Yes". The passage clearly supports all 3 statements.

Hi, my justification for the answer that all 3 items are "No"

Question: For each of the following, select Yes if the statement is separately supported by the passage and separately supported by each of the two tables. Otherwise select No

While the answers itself were mentioned in the passage (Tab 1), they were not supported elsewhere in either the table (Tab 2 & Tab 3)

Hope this helps
