Answer is D and not E.

Above analysis to eliminate A B C is right ....

D is 100% sure while E is not 100% sure.

a. in 2010 the paper industry will use at least twice as much recycled pulp as it did last year
Iâ€™ll use a little maths here. Last year, assuming the amount of fresh pulp used is x, then the amount of recycled pulp is less than or equal to x/2 since weâ€™re told the industry use twice as much fresh pulp as recycled pulp. Fast forward to 2010, the industry now uses recycled pulp as fresh pulp. Assuming fresh pulp is now x+n (since a greater quantity is used), then the amount of fresh pulp is at least x+n. However, weâ€™re not sure if x+n >= 2x. So this choice is out.

b. in 2010 the paper industry will use at least twice as much total pulp as it did last year
- Using the same argument above, in the last year, the amount of pulp used is about x+x/2, while in 2010 it is 2x+2n. So we know the amount of total pulp is going to be at least twice that used last year.

c. in 2010 the paper industry will produce more paper froma given amount of pulp that is did last year
- Nothing about production of paper from is mentioned. This choice is out.

d. as compared with last year in 2010 the paper industry will make more paper that contains only recycled pulp
- Canâ€™t tell for sure

e. as compared with last year in 2010 the paper industry will make more paper that contains only fresh pulp
- Same as above

Whatâ€™s the OA?

ywilfred u have made a folly
x+n >= 2*(x/2) which is x and not 2x => as you have taken x as fresh pulp x/2 will be as recycle pulp in last year.

SigEpUCI's reasoning is absolutely correct
The only answer possible is "A" here

I got it as A.

Last year, FP = 2RP

In 2010, FP = RP

=> Let FP increase marginally. In that case, RP has to double to meet FP at the minimum. Thus, only A is correct.

A seems to be best answer to this question. I don't know why D and E could be in the answer choices.

C -- new information which is not explicitly mentioned in the stimulus
