### HideShow timer Statistics

Organite is a kind of bioorganic fertilizer that is produced by harvesting wastewater from both households and industrial sources. The water is chemically treated at water reclamation facilities, where nutrients are extracted from the waste. These nutrients are then used to produce Organite, which has greatly decreased the need to produce synthetic nutrients. However, production of synthetic nutrients for fertilizers has increased by 60 percent over the last decade.

Which of the following, if true, most helps to explain the apparent discrepancy?

A. Many farmers are not convinced that products created from recycled waste can be as effective as conventional methods of fertilizing crops.

B. The production rate of bioorganic products is significantly lower than the growth rate of the overall market for fertilizers.

C. Bioorganic products have been proven to be more successful than synthetic products in the process of fertilization.

D. Bioorganic materials are increasingly finding uses in processes other than agricultural fertilization.

E. Several nutrients can be extracted from sources other than wastewater from domestic and industrial sources.

Not A(Though I fixated on it a lot).
A) is implying that farmers do not buy organic fertiliser.It doesn't explain why the production of synthetic fertiliser has increased.If they do not buy organic fertiliser it does not mean that synthetic fertiliser has to increase in production.Hence A) is a big no
