### HideShow timer Statistics

The distance that animals travel each day and the size of the groups in which they live are highly correlated with their diets. And diet itself depends in large part on the sizes and shapes of animalsâ€™ teeth and faces.

The statements above provide the most support for which one of the following?

(A) Animals that eat meat travel in relatively small groups and across relatively small ranges compared to animals that eat plants.
(B) Animals that have varied diets can be expected to be larger and more robust than animals that eat only one or two kinds of food.
(C) When individual herd animals lose their teeth through age or injury, those animals are likely to travel at the rear of their herd.
(D) Information about the size and shape of an animalâ€™s face is all that is needed to identify the species to which that animal belongs.
(E) Information about the size and shape of an extinct animalâ€™s teeth and face can establish whether that animal is likely to have been a herd animal

The conslusion must make most use of what is provided as facts ....A, B, C and D fail to completely mention "teeth" and "face" (key terms here)---> out . Also, D uses extreme language.
E is the best also becoz it uses " likely", which fits those bold parts in the passage.

e)
a) out of scope, no mention on the type of foods compared to groups.
b) Info only mentions how diet affects face shape, not total size.
c) Out of scope
d) Too exterme, it is not the only info needed to determine species
