### HideShow timer Statistics

Cowonga lion cubs in the wild often engage in aggressive and even violent play with their siblings. This activity is apparently instigated by the parent lion. Cowonga lion cubs born in captivity, however, rarely engage in aggressive play. Zoologists have concluded that this form of play teaches the young lions the aggressive skills neccessary for successful hunting in the wild, and that such play is not instigated in captivity because the development of hunging skills is unecessary there.

The zoologist's conclusion would be most strengthend by demonstrating that.

A) Cowonga lions raised in captivity are unable to hunt successfully in the wild.

B)The skills developed from agressive play are simliar to those used for hunting in the wild.

C) The young of other types of predatory animals also engage in agressive play

D) Parent lions that were raised in captivity do not instigate this play in their young

E) None of the Cowonga lions raised in the wild is incapable of hunting successfully

I vote for B

Zoologists concluded that skills for the play are the same as those used for hunting. What makes them think so? The similarity of both types of skills.

I pick B as well.

Zoologist think that the playfull skills teaches the young how to hunt in the wild. If these skills are similar to the aggressive playfull skils, then it streghtens the conclusion.
