Q90.1. Most teas from China are blend.
Q90.2 Most teas from Taiwan are expensive.
Q90.3 Most expensive teas contain a green/ oolong blend.
Q90.4 Chinese teas are cheaper than Taiwanese.
Q90.5 A blend may contain teas from several countries.
Answer and Explanation:
Q90.1 No. There is nothing in the text that supports this.
Q90.2 No. Most expensive teas are oolongs ≠ most or all oolongs are expensive. So, most Taiwanese are oolongs ≠ most Taiwanese teas are expensive.
Q90.3 No. A blend with more than one subtype cannot be made.
Q90.4 No. The text doesn’t support this statement.
Q90.5 Yes. the operative word is 'may'. The only restriction: a blend canot contain more than one subtype. As you can get some subtypes in more than one country (we know there are at least six countries and only three different subtypes), it is possible to buils a blend from more than one country. Had the word 'may' been omitted, the answer would have been 'no'.
