7. Every adult male woolly monkey is larger than even the largest female woolly monkey. In colonies of woolly monkeys, any adult male will dominate any female.

If the statements above are true, which one of the following must on the basis of them be true of woolly monkeys in colonies?

(A) Size is the primary determinant of relations of dominance among woolly monkeys.

(B) Some large adolescent male woolly monkeys dominate some smaller females of the species.

(C) If a male woolly monkey is larger than a female of the species, that male will dominate that female.

(D) If a female woolly monkey dominates a male of the species. the dominated male monkey is not an adult.

(E) An adult male woolly monkey can dominate a female of the species only if that female is also an adult.

I would say the answer is D. The trick is that the passage specifies the ADULT males dominating ALL females. So, it must be true that if a female is dominating a male, the male must NOT be an adult.

A seems correct, but one cannot infer size as the major reason of dominance. Sex could be the primary reason with size being a close second and the passage would remain true.

B does not need to be true. Adolescent males are irrelevant to either sentence in the passage.

C. Again the key to the passage is the male being adult. This could be concerning adolescent males which are irrelevant to the passage.

E. It doesn't matter if the female is adult, an adult male will dominate it.

D is correct. I confused Adult with Adolescent.
The logic is If A then B leads to if Not B then Not A
