The reason much refrigerated food spoils is that it ends up out of sight at the back of the shelf. So why not have round shelves that rotate? Because such rotating shelves would have just the same sort of drawback, since things would fall off the shelves' edges into the rear corners.

Which of the following is presupposed in the argument against introducing rotating shelves?

(A) Refrigerators would not be made so that their interior space is cylindrical.
(B) Refrigerators would not be made to have a window in front for easy viewing of their contents without opening the door.
(C) The problem of spoilage of refrigerated food is not amenable to any solution based on design changes.
(D) Refrigerators are so well designed that there are bound to be drawbacks to any design change.
(E) Rotating shelves would be designed to rotate only while the refrigerator door was open.

A seems to be correct.

If questions such as the above come in GMAT, then god save me.

B)... what difference does it make if there is a window or not since opening the
door and seeing it will give the same view as from the window

C) where does the passage imply this

D) same as C

E) what is this

A) if their interior space is cylindrical, then as the shelf rotates, the older stuff
falls off first and is placed before the older one.
However, the main reason I chose this is that it seems less illogical than the others
in the present context.

As the Evidence or the conclusion provided by the Argument is that THINGS WILL FALL OF THE REAR EDEGES.

This implies that the refri. will still have the edges that can only happen if the INTERIOR is not CYLYNDRICAL--> (A) states that clearly

So Pick A

OA is "A"....more like a math ques....one can't crack it unless one knows the shape of a cylinder
