### HideShow timer Statistics

Of the countries that were the worldâ€™s twenty largest exporters in 1953, four had the same share of total world exports in 1984 as in 1953. Theses countries can therefore serve as models for those countries that wish to keep their share of the global export trade stable over the years.
Which of the following, if true, casts the most serious doubt on the suitability of those four countries as models in the sense described?
(A) Many countries wish to increase their share of world export trade, not just keep it stable.
(B) Many countries are less concerned with exports alone than with he balance between exports and imports.
(C) With respect to the mix of products each exports, the four countries are very different from each other.
(D) Of the four countries, two had a much larger, and two had a much smaller, share of total world exports in 1970 than in 1984.
(E) The exports of the four countries range from 15 percent to 75 percent of the total national output.

Clearly (D). These facts show how UNSTABLE the exports of the four countries have been over the years.

I agree with D.
Here we are talking about stability and D says that they were after all not so stable.

D

It gives us a reason that share of the four company fluctuated and were not constant.

Should be D.

We need to show to the models are not stable.

ABC are easy eliminations because they don't deal with the model and the question asked.
