Worldwide demand for corn has remained flat for the past five years, as has the production and the price of corn. Yet, last year, corn growers reported a 15 percent increase in profits over the previous year’s level.

Which of the following statements, if true, would most resolve the discrepancy outlined above?

A. Many countries are pursuing alternative fuel plans based on ethanol, a corn based alcohol.
B. Demand for wheat, barley, and rice has also remained flat for the past five years.
C. There are fewer family farms and more large corporate farms today than there were five years ago.
D. A new machine allows corn growers to cut harvesting time by a third and save money on expensive labor costs.
E. Some corn produced in the last year has not been sold and has gone to waste.
