Comment on Bread Consumption
Choosing answer choice C also
I understand your point, but
I understand your point, but answer choice E doesn't do anything to resolve the apparent paradox.
The paradox involves the relationship between bread prices and bread consumption. Answer choice E does not mention anything about prices.
Keep in mind that Paradox questions do not require us to find an answer choice that is 100% absolute/perfect. The requirement is to determine the BEST answer.
Dear Brent, I stuck with two
Thank you for this wonderful lesson.
The paradox here is that, in poorer communities, people respond to higher bread prices by buying MORE bread.
Answer choice B says that there are very few alternatives to bread. This doesn't resolve the paradox.
Let's say that a community has ZERO alternatives to bread. So, if the price of bread increases, why would those people then buy more bread?
With Paradox questions, we're looking for an "AHA!!" moment, where everything becomes clear. Answer choice B doesn't accomplish this.
