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.
I don't immediately have a prediction for this question. I have no choice but to look at the answers.
A. Whatley did say grow ten crops, but “to generate year-round cash flow,” not to guarantee buyers.
B. Whatley said that avoiding harvest costs would enable small farms with CMCs to price at 60 percent of supermarkets. Whatley didn't say, as far as we know, that pricing at 60 percent would guarantee buyers.
C. Whatley didn't say that farms should exclude any client who doesn't value fresh produce.
D. Yes, Whatley said both of these things in lines 23-25, right after “To help guarantee a market.” This will be the answer.
E. Whatley did talk about irrigation, but did not say that irrigation is necessary to guarantee buyers.
Our answer is D, because it is something Whatley said will guarantee buyers.
