June 2013 LSAT, Reading Comprehension, Q5

Crowdsourcing the June 2013 LSAT:  June 2013 LSAT Explanation Central | About this project If you struggled at all with questions 1-7, odds are that you didn't quite catch the main point of the passage. Here's my summary, if you need a refresher.

This is a Must Be True question. No problem. Pick the answer that has the strongest support from the passage. A boring, seemingly obvious answer would be ideal.

A. I don't remember the passage saying this. I do remember the passage saying something about the importance of debt financing, but that seemed to apply to all farms, not just corporate ones. Next please.

B. I stopped reading this one halfway through. The argument never said anything like “if small farms charged XYZ, blah blah blah”¦” that just didn't happen. This ain't it.

C. Nope. The facts never addressed whether rural or urban clients would be more likely to join a CMC. At least I don't remember that happening.

D. This is a fucked-up tricky answer, but I'm sure it's the credited one. The passage did say “only grow what customers ask for.” And it also said “grow at least ten crops.” So if customers only ask for 9 crops, a small farmer can't possibly follow both of those rules. Silly question perhaps, but this is gonna be the answer.

E. Nah. The passage never said anything about accounting, or who pays for what “directly.”

Our answer is D, because it has direct support from the passage.

Please ask questions and/or suggest corrections to anything that seems confusing... we want to make this the best resource we can for LSAT students. We'll have all the June 2013 explanations up as quickly as possible. Thanks for reading. Tell your friends!
