can someone please help me with a nuance

If a statement says

most barnyards give beef primarily to markets and sell only vegetables that are guaranteed to be cleaned


does this mean

MOST barnyards give beef primarily to markets
AND
MOST barnyards sell only veggies

OR does it mean

MOST barnyards give beef primarily to markets
AND
ALL banyards sell only veggies guaranteed

i thought it was the first one...but hte LSAT is making me think twice.

I don't see how it could be anything but the first one. You haven't mentioned anything about all barnyards or given any reason why we would expand the scope past "most". Is this verbatim out of a question?
