(B) Toddlers sometimes engage in biting people in order to get attention from adults.
(C) Toddlers mistakenly believe that biting people is viewed as acceptable behavior by adults.

Choice between A and E, but E has wrong "an effective way". We don't know whether bitting is successful.

I agree it's A. I got it down to A and E but 'an effecive way' threw me off of E.

(A) for me too.

(E) doesn't make much sense because it is assuming that biting is "effective" (which means that toddlers are able to prevent people from having their toys). This assumption is not stated in the passage.

I choose (A)

(A) Passage does show that toddlers sometimes bite people to solve problems. Here, problem = toddler wants toy and feels that someone is preventing him/her from having it. Thus, possible answer.

(B) Nothing is mentioned in the passage about getting attention from adults

(C) Nothing mentioned about acceptable behaviour

(D) Nothing mentioned about the result of biting, whether it thwarts toddlers or not

(E) Similar to (D); passage did not mention if biting was effective for toddlers or not

(A) Biting people is sometimes a way for toddlers to try to solve problems.[Yes. As per argument biting is used to solve the problem – Hold it]

(B) Toddlers sometimes engage in biting people in order to get attention from adults. [not as per argument premises – eliminate it]

(C) Toddlers mistakenly believe that biting people is viewed as acceptable behavior by adults. [Toddlers knowing about adults needs – eliminate it]

(D) Toddlers do not recognize that by biting people they often thwart their own ends.[Toddlers and understanding their own actions – eliminate it]

(E) Resorting to biting people is in some cases an effective way for toddlers to get what they want.[Not as per argument premises – eliminate it]

Answer: A
