all ok, except 13. Your text is really old. Egypt is not importing more than half its food supply, it now only imports about 40 percent. So why can't it produce food:
Most of the food farmers have small farms, 1 acre or less. They are grossly inefficient. Water is a chronic problem, even with the Aswan Dam, water is in short supply, the annual per captia water allocation has been reduced by 30 percent in the last 15 years. Finally, the country is incredibly poor, and is governed economically by the World Bank, which consists of members looking to set trade policy favorable to themselves, which means importing food.
Of all your poor answers, answer d is the best, but I wonder if your text agrees.
