In the 1960’s, long term studies of primate behavior often used as subjects, tamarins, small monkeys that were thought ideal because they require only small cages, breed frequently, and grow quickly. Field studies were not used because they were costly and difficult. Tamarins were kept caged in male-female pairs, because otherwise, serious fights erupted between unrelated females. On the basis of the fact that breeding occured, tamarins were as monogamous.

The view taken by the researchers concerning the monogamy of tamarins depended on a questionable assumption. Which of the following could have served as that assumption?

(A) The suppression of fighting between related females serves to protect their common genetic inheritance
(B) Adult male tamarins contribuate to the care of tamarin infants
(C) The social system of tamarin requires monogamous pairing
(D) Male tamarin monkeys do not display aggresive behavior in the wild
(E) The way that tamarins were kept in cages did not affect their mating behavior

E. The males were under constant supervision in closed quarters so they couldn`t get a chance to be unfaithful

should be e.

e is questionable because there's a huge chance that monogamy was because they were kept in cages, paired.....who knows what they would have done if allowed to roam around free....
