D.

If you negate D - If a female woolly monkey dominates a male of the species, the dominated male monkey is an adult - the stimulus becomes incorrect. So, 'D' has to be true based on the statements above.

IMO D

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 --> not really. An adolescent male monkey can be bigger than a female monkey but it may not dominate such female monkey
(B) Some large adolescent male woolly monkeys dominate some smaller females of the species --> adolescent male monkey are not mentioned
(C) If a male woolly monkey is larger than a female of the species, that male will dominate that female --> unless it is an adult monkey, no certain that it can dominate a female monkey
(D) If a female woolly monkey dominates a male of the species, the dominated male monkey is not an adult -->the best.
(E) An adult male woolly monkey can dominate a female of the species only if that female is also an adult -->not completely correct. Adult male monkey can dominate any female monkey (adult or younger), not only an adult female monkey

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

(A) seems the least ambiguous and most generalized, but there is also the factor of male V. female;
(B) out of scope, adolescents were not discussed;
(C) out of scope, we were only told about ADULT males, not ANY male;

(D) by POE, this is it.
