In a recent year California produced an orange crop equal to only seventy-six percent of Florida's orange crop. However, when citrus crops as a group, including oranges, were compared, the California crop was twenty-three percent greater than Florida's crop for the same year.

If the information above is true, which of the following can properly be concluded about the Florida and California citrus crops in the year mentioned?

(A) Florida's climate was suited only to growing oranges.
(B) Florida produced larger oranges than California did.
(C) California produced more oranges than it did non-orange citrus.
(D) California's proportion of non-orange citrus crops was higher than Florida's.
(E) California had more acreage that could be devoted to agriculture than did Florida.

• Florida produced more oranges than California.
• California produced more total citrus than Florida.
• Therefore, California must have produced more non-orange citrus than Florida.

Choice D correctly identifies this logical conclusion.

Choice A is not necessarily true. Florida's climate could be very amenable for lemons also, but disastrous for grapefruits.

Choice B is irrelevant, as size is not part of the argument.

Choice C is not necessarily true, as oranges could be a very small part of total citrus production.

Choice E doesn't have anything to do with citrus in specific.
