I got A.

Last year :
recycled paper pulp : x
fresh paper pulp : 2x

2010:
recycled paper pulp : y
fresh paper pulp: y

also given info about fresh pulp: " while using a greater quantity of fresh pulp than it did last year. " => so y > 2x => which exactly what A says recycled pulp in 2010 (y) > 2 * (recycled paper pulp last year)

easy one, Should be a DS problem :D

Last year: fresh - 100kg, recycle - 50; Total = 150

2010: fresh(101) = recycle, fresh > fresh of last year; total = 202

If the information above is correct and the analyst's projections prove to be accurate, which of the following projections must also be accurate.

A. In 2010 the paper industry will use at least twice as much recycled pulp as it did last year --- this is 50 vs 101 recycled. correct.

B. In 2010 the paper industry will use at least twice as much total pulp as it did last year.--- 150 vs 202 ; wrong

C. In 2010 the paper industry will produce more paper from a given amount of pulp than it did last year. --- i think these two should be equal unless some technological development.

D. As compared with last year, in 2010 the paper industry will make more paper that contains only recycled pulp. --- both will be equal.

E. As compared with last year, in 2010 the paper industry will make less paper that contains only fresh pulp. --- wrong.
