### HideShow timer Statistics

The overall operating costs of many small farms are reduced when the farmers of small
farms eliminate expensive commercial chemical fertilizers and pesticides in favor of crop
rotation and the twice-yearly use of manure as fertilizer. Therefore, farmers of large farms
should adopt the same measures. They will then realize even greater total savings than do the
small farmers.

The argument assumes that

A. it is more cost-effective for small farm farmers to eliminate the use of commercial fertilizers
and pesticides than it is for large farm farmers to do so
B. a sufficient amount of manure will be available for the fields of large farm farmers
C. large farm farmers would not realize similar cost benefits by using treated sewage sludge
instead of commercial chemical fertilizers
D. large farm farmers generally look to small farm farmers for innovative ways of increasing
crop yields or reducing operating costs
E. the smaller the farm, the more control the farmer has over operating costs
