: 1."It is argued that books will be no longer necessary after each family owns a computer."
: Does "It is argued" mean "it is inferred or indicated"?

: 2."The export increase in column by 10 percent over last year."
: Waht does "in column" mean?

1. Yes. By reasoning, it is predicted...
2. This is more difficult! It may refer to information given in a table. The vertical lines are columns, and the horizontal lines are rows. Information may be contained in a column or in a row.
