For this type of argument you want to find the option that MUST be true given the content of the argument (premises). Here is the argument structure:

Refrigerator collapsed the ice market because the refigerator cooled food without the need of ice.
Similarly, Pest resistant crops will ....

Your answer should discuss some product's collapse due to a new product replacing the need for that older product.

A - Irrelevant - Doesn't discuss a separate, pre-established product
B - Irrelevant - Doesn't discuss a separate, pre-established product
C - Correct - Talks about a previously required product (pesticides) will be displaced by the new product (pest-resistant crops)
D - Out of Scope
E - Out of Scope
