Many believe that Spanish eggplants are the most popular among gardeners in the United States. Indeed, the Heirloom Eggplant Society reports that 25% of eggplant plants sold last year were of Spanish eggplants, indicating that this belief is apparently correct.

Which of the following, if true, would most undermine the conclusion presented above?

a )Some of the eggplant plants sold were sold as seeds rather than seedlings.
b)The largest eggplant nursery in the United States only sells eggplant plants.
c) Most gardeners in the United States do not grow eggplant plants in their gardens.
d) At least some of the eggplant plants sold did not make it to maturity.
e) There are only 3 types of eggplant plants sold in the United States.

i dont know why i messed up with this, anyone please explain!!!

If there are only 3 types of eggplant plants and they were all sold equally on the market, then they would each have 33.33% of the market share. However, the Spanish eggplant makes up only 25% of the market, therefore it is not the most popular.
