The prices declined in the international market , so the farmers would have preferred what ?? the prices to increase. hence, the option-
similar in size but in the opposite direction ( similar in size = increase at the same rate as the prices have decline)
( in the opposite direction = towards profit not loss)

I agree it is in opposite direction. So we eliminate A, C and E.

B says - much smaller but in the opposite direction

Now much smaller would also work, anything in profit would work, given the agri-market was not doing well.

But on the other hand, this is a "imply" question. Which means why you want a smaller profit? You might be right. Sorry thinking out loud.

Sajjad1994, I got 6/8 right in 10 mins 15 secs, would have got the last question right had I not rushed it. Could you share the OE for question number 7 as and when possible, would love to know where I went wrong.

I use around 20 min in the question. I think It's too hard.
