The right answer is B.

Why is B preferred to D?

Could anyone explain?

The question needs to know what Jarvi's work has broughth into question....it is a question on the concept of age.
The new theory suggests something in favor of rate of growth not against.

Jarvis passage reasons out that 'differences in growth rate' does influence the 'execution time of a task' and not the age (which could have been widely assumed to be detemining the rate of task completion).

His passage calls into question the widely accepted phenomenon that age detetermines the task completion rates and disproves the same with his passage.
