I completely agree with those who assert that it's A that is the right answer. Indeed. if lions raised in captivity were able to hunt successfully this would mean that THEY DO NOT NEED aggressive behavior to learn hunting skills. But the fact that they can't hunt well if they are raised in captivity supports the paragraph best.

Even though there is a difference, I guess this is not the intended trap. see below

Cowonga lion cubs in the wild often engage in aggressive play with their siblings.

Cowonga lion cubs born in captivity,however,rarely engage in aggressive play.

Zoologists have concluded that this form of play(aggressive play) teaches the young lions the aggressive skills necessary for successful hunting in the wild and that such play is not instigated in captivity because the development of hunting skills is unnecessary there.

hence aggressive play teaches aggressive skills.

but here statement says that

Quote:
the skills developed from aggressive play are similar to those used for hunting in the wild.


I guess skills developed from play is different from skills learnt through play.

B is wrong because of the word "similar"
As aggressive skill can be similar to, but not as practical as hunting skill.

A shows without aggressive skill training, the lion can't hunt successfully.
Thus it is a good match.

Cowonga lion cubs in the wild often engage in aggressive and even violent play with their siblings. This activity is apparently instigated by the parent lions.

Zoologists have concluded that this form of play teaches the young lions the aggressive skills necessary for successful hunting in the wild and that such play is not instigated in captivity because the development of hunting skills is unnecessary there.

The zoologists' conclusion would be most strengthened by demonstrating that

(A) Cowonga lions raised in captivity are unable to hunt successfully in the wild.

(B) the skills developed from aggressive play are similar to those used for hunting in the wild.

(C) the young of other types of predatory animals also engage in aggressive play.

(D) parent lions that were raised in captivity do not instigate this play in their young.

(E) none of the Cowonga lions raised in the wild is incapable of hunting successfully.


Can Someone Explain why option E is incorrect.

can we convert Statement E to Some of the Cowonga lions raised in the wild are capable of hunting successfully?

Please advise

The argument concludes that the lion cubs born in captivity do not indulge in aggressive play,hence do not inculcate the aggressive skills needed for hunting in the wild. Hence "A" which clearly states that these cubs are incapable of hunting in the wild strengthens the conclusion. "E" kind of restates the fact. It has already been stated that cubs raised in wild indulge in aggressive play,hence inculcate aggressive skills necessary for hunting in the wild. Hence "E" does not provide any additional information.
