Hi @JayDee8732, thanks for your post.

In this stimulus, we are presented with a series of factual statements, and then asked which statement is textually supported by the stimulus.

Answer choice (E) says "apple juice that undergoes intensive pasteurization is less likely than McElligott's apple juice is to contain bacteria."

This is textually supported. We are told (1) McElligott now flash pasteurizes its apple juice, and (2) that intensive pasteurization (which lasts longer) eliminates bacteria more effectively than does any other method. Well, this means that intensive pasteurization eliminates bacteria more effectively than flash pasteurization.

So apple juice that has undergone intensive pasteurization is less likely than McElligott's to contain bacteria. Yes, that is textually supported.

Hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
