Since vegetables prices are rising it is logical that prices rise when the supply is less. Therefore vegetable has become a rare commodity follows. Please discuss.

Logically even though prices are soaring high have you ever seen vegetables not available in market.They are avialble :-)

Thanks twinkle.

Since vegetables prices are rising it is logical that people cannot afford rising vegitable prices. Therefor people cannot eat vegitabe. Isn't it.

I am talking about conclusion II. vegitables are available but because of high price people wont eat or reduce vegitables. so only conclusion II follows beyond reasonable doubt.

Due to vegetable not available in market vegetables prices are rising. So people cannot effort it, so they can't vegetable so my ans is [E].

But no where it has been written about the availability of vegetables & why people can't eat vegetables. ?

Actually I did give it a thought but it just hit me tht 'prices soaring' can b due to less production of veggies or maybe corruption. I have heard more than enuf cases on it. Whereas people can not eat also implies that they are suffering from some problem or some other thing of that sort. Diseases.

So D is correct!

Vegetables are becoming a rare commodity----may be because of increase in population

People cannot eat vegetables.-----can't be said because some people can afford to eat highly priced vegetables where some people can't so
I and II are both are doubtful statements
