Cognitive scientists argue that the ability to recognize oneself in a mirror—an ability limited to humans, apes, and perhaps to dolphins as well—is an indication of self-awareness.
A. the ability to recognize oneself in a mirror—an ability limited to humans, apes, and perhaps to dolphins as well—is an indication of : Incorrect , an ability limited to humans, apes and perhaps as well.....Parallelism error...either TO is added before first element of the list or before each element of the list and "ability to " is the right idiom
B. the ability to recognize oneself in a mirror—an ability limited to humans, apes, and perhaps dolphins—is an indication : Correct ..correct parallelism maintained
C. the ability to recognize themselves in a mirror—an ability limited to humans, apes, and perhaps to dolphins as well—is an indication for: Incorrect...themselves should be replaced with oneself...as it is talking about ability of an individual...dont get confused with the list of animals following themselves....moreover "an ability limited to humans, apes, and perhaps dolphins" is a modifier .....and not directly linked with themselves
D. recognizing oneself in a mirror, as do humans, apes, and perhaps dolphins as well, is an indicator for: Incorrect...indication for is incorrect as it should be " indication of"
E. recognition of oneself in a mirror—an ability limited to humans, apes, and dolphins perhaps—is used as an indicator for : Incorrect...indication for is incorrect as it should be " indication of" and recognition is noun...here verb (Gerund) is required
