Our conclusion is: "world hunger would not thereby be significantly reduced."

Why? Because many people excluding eating meat from their diet is not sufficient.

Answer choice (C) states: "The amount of land needed to produce enough meat to feed one person for a week can grow enough grain to feed more than ten people for a week."

Answer choice (C) explains that once a lot of people exclude meat, people can then use the land--which was originally utilized to produce meat enough for one person--for the purpose of grain that will be able to feed more than ten people.

Thus, it is not true that world hunger would not thereby be significantly reduced, since one person's excluding meat would allow that land to be used to feed ten people.

Hope that clears things up! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
