#48-Some anthropologists study modern-day societies of foragers in an effort to learn about our ancient ancestors who were also foragers. A flaw in this strategy is that forager societies are extremely varied. Indeed, any forager society with which anthropologists are familiar has had considerable contact with modern, non-forager societies.

a number of important features in common that are absent from other types of societies.
(B) Most ancient forager societies either dissolved or
made a transition to another way of life.
(C) All anthropologists study one kind or another of
(D) Many anthropologists who study modern-day
forager societies do not draw inferences about ancient societies on the basis of their studies.
(E) Even those modern-day forager societies that
have not had significant contact with modern societies are importantly different from ancient forager societies.
