Hi There!

Glad to help you on this, got 3/3 correct. But, what choice did you choose and why? Were you able to infer any other option choice?

Official Explanation


3. It can be inferred that

Difficulty Level: Very Hard

Explanation

Choice (D) is the correct answer because everything in the passage points to the efficiency of containerization. Therefore, if some commodities are still being transported as bulk, the likely reason is that they cannot be easily containerized.

Choice (A) is incorrect; nothing in the passage suggests this. Rather, facts in the passage point to the idea that there are logistical problems with containerizing some commodities and, therefore, bulk remains the best option for them.

Choice (B) is incorrect because the main ideas of the passage suggest that most commodities lend themselves to containerization and that others are bulk. While a few opportunities still exist for more containerization in niche markets, probably not every bulk commodity can be containerized.

Choice (C) is the most obviously wrong answer among these choices. The passage suggests in many places that containerization cannot be used for all commodities.

Choice (E) should be eliminated not only because the Bloomberg News report suggests a situation to the contrary, but also because the article is about expanding containerization to more niche markets.

The correct answer is (D).

2. Based on passage information, which of the following statements is LEAST likely to be true?

Difficulty Level: Hard

Explanation

Choice (E) is the correct answer because there is nothing in the article to suggest the information from Bloomberg News is current.

Choice (A) must be ruled out because the statement is logical and nothing in the passage suggests anything to the contrary.

Choices (B) and (C) are incorrect because the suggestion itself is reasonable and because no facts in the passage contradict it.

Choice (D) should be eliminated because these facts are the basis of the passage and form the support on which other claims are laid.

The correct answer is (E).
