Zimbabwe’s farmland produces only a fraction of the total export output possible. The reason is that government sponsored militias have forcibly transferred 70% of the nation’s farmland from the colonial plantations and given it to local peasants to form small farms. Restoring the original colonial family plantations would be the most effective means to increase exports.

The answer to which of the following questions would be most relevant to evaluating the strength of the argument given above?

A. Who owns the remaining 30% of the Zimbabwe farmland?
B. What percentage of Zimbabwe’s crop output is available for export?
C. How much experience do the new small farmers have in farm management and agricultural techniques and how effective are they?
D. How does Zimbabwe’s current farm export capacity compare with what would be available if the plantations were restored?
E. What crops are available for export from Zimbabwe and what is their value on the export market?

Zimbabwe’s farmland produces only a fraction of the total export output possible. The reason is that government sponsored militias have forcibly transferred 70% of the nation’s farmland from the colonial plantations and given it to local peasants to form small farms. Restoring the original colonial family plantations would be the most effective means to increase exports.

The answer to which of the following questions would be most relevant to evaluating the strength of the argument given above?

A. Who owns the remaining 30% of the Zimbabwe farmland?
Who owns the land is not relevant as we are talking about the majority of the land and not the land entirely.
B. What percentage of Zimbabwe’s crop output is available for export?
we are solely comparing the export output before and export output now.
C. How much experience do the new small farmers have in farm management and agricultural techniques and how effective are they?
even if the farmers had exp then there would be more factors that may effect the outcome.
ok answer but not very effective because it counts experience as only factor.
D. How does Zimbabwe’s current farm export capacity compare with what would be available if the plantations were restored?
Best answer because it directly compares the outcome now and the outcome before.
E. What crops are available for export from Zimbabwe and what is their value on the export market?
what varienty of crop can be exported is not discussed.
