While price supports for dairy products will save jobs in the dairy industry, they will also endanger jobs in other food industries. Because price supports will make dairy products more expensive, families will spend a greater portion of their food budgets on dairy products.

The author’s argument depends on which of the following premises?

Most consumers would not prefer lower-priced dairy products to other lower-priced food items.

If dairy price supports are implemented, there will be an increase in the number of jobs in the dairy industry.

Consumers would spend more money on other types of food if there were no dairy price supports.

If price supports for other food products were implemented, sales of those products would decline.

The quantity of dairy products sold will decrease if price supports are implemented.

OA after some discussion

IMO A

The author concludes that the families will end up spending greater portion of their budgets on dairy products. This is possible if they still consume the same amount of dairy products even after the price rise.

A assumes that families will not prefer lower priced diary products meaning they will agree to buy higher priced diary products.

Hope its correct!
