Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Elimination:

Let us look at the links between the sentences. Both sentences B and C talk about the Subramanian committee. Now, sentence B states that the committee has rightly noted that the “worst scenario for farmers” is the weak government procurement policy combined with restrictions on exports and stock-holding. Sentence C talks of the volatility in production and prices of pulses being shown by the report as higher than that of cereals. These sentences talk of two different ideas. Does A or D provide a link? Neither sentence A, which talks of the projected demand nor sentence D which talks of how pulses help in soil rejuvenation seems to fit in with C and B.

Now, sentence C tells us that the volatility in production and prices is “neither in the interests of the producers nor the consumers”. Sentence A clarifies why this is not in the interest of the consumers. The demand is set to rise dramatically. Also, sentence A says that farmers need to be encouraged to grow more pulses “not simply” because of the projected demand. What other reason exists for encouraging farmers to grow pulses? Sentence D answers this question. Pulses help in soil rejuvenation and fix atmospheric nitrogen, without consuming much water. So it is also in the interest of the producers to grow more pulses. CAD forms cogent paragraph. The idea is that growing pulses is beneficial to both producers and consumers.

Sentence B talks about procurement and export/stock-holding restrictions.

The question is " Choose the Sentence that does not fit in "

Hence, the answer is Sentence B

Choice B is the correct answer.
