In New Zealand, the grape is a long-established crop, but the truffle-an edible fungus that grows on the roots of certain trees-became a commercial crop in the 1980s. The graph represents projected cumulative net income for grape and truffle crops through the end of the year, in thousands of New Zealand dollars per hectare (NZ$1,000/ha), for each of the first 11 years since planting. Cumulative net income is equal to total revenue from crop sales for the years since planting minus total investment costs over those same years.
From each drop-down menu, select the option that creates the most accurate statement about these projections based on the given information.
A. Cumulative net income from truffles is least at the end of the year since planting.
B. If cumulative net income for grapes continues to grow at the same rate as in years 8 through 11 since planting, the cumulative net income from grapes for the 12th year since planting will be approximately NZ$ per hectare.
