Which of the following best completes the passage below?

At a recent conference on the evolution of humans, a team of scientists proposed the theory that the millions of sweat glands in human skin evolved as a way to keep humans cool while running over long distances or for extended periods. The scientists theorize that this ability developed as a hunting strategy that depended on out-enduring prey by pushing animals to overheat. One of the first things that must be shown, of course, before this theory can be commonly accepted is that .

A. endurance is an advantage for running long distances or for extended periods
B. animals can be pushed to a point where overheating will make them easier prey
C. there are enough sweat glands in human skin to keep humans from overheating
D. early humans were the only hunters to employ this strategy
the scientific community can agree on the meaning of “long distances”
E. the scientific community can agree on the meaning of “long distances”
