DISCUSSION: The last sentence of paragraph 2 talks about this. To guarantee a market for all their crops, farmers should only grow crops clients ask for, and avoid using chemicals if clients don’t want any.
You can use common sense to sift through the answers. If you’re a farmer, you have a certain stock of produce. This question talks about selling 100% of that stock. That’s very hard, almost no business sells 100% of its inventory.
Growing different kinds of produce won’t sell 100% (answer A). Watering your plants won’t help you sell 100% of them (answer E).
The only real way to sell 100% of your stock is to have customers guarantee in advance that they will buy everything you produce. (last sentence of paragraph 2)
- Growing 10 different crops protects against crop failure (first sentence of paragraph 2). It doesn’t guarantee a market for crops.
- This low pricing is what will encourage consumers to come to the farm. But low prices don’t guarantee a farmer will sell everything.
- Clients who like fresh produce won’t necessarily buy all of your produce.
- CORRECT. See the last sentence of paragraph 2. If customers order all crops in advance, then presumably farmers will sell everything.
- This helps prevent crops from dying. That won’t guarantee that crops sell.
