Is this one of the logic questions? Since I saw hints of the "if P, then Q" sort of sentence structure in answer D?

(A) - can't infer that from the passage
(B) - Can't tell either
(C) - Can't tell
(D) If a female woolly monkey dominates a male of the species, the dominated male monkey is not an adult.
(E) - the passage doesn't say that

D is the best answer. We're told any adult male will dominate a female, so if the female is dominating a male, then it must not be an adult male.

lets see.

A. Size can be one of the factors but doesn't certainly say if it is the primary determinat, there can be other determinant like being adult, sex etc as well. this is one possiblity, but not a certain one.

E. it can dominate any female.

So D is the right choice.

I am sure answer should be either A or D. D makes sense but looks like A is the Basic Assumption author is making for his conslusion.

Conslusion : In colonies of woolly monkeys, any adult male will dominate any female.

Evidance : Every adult male woolly monkey is larger than even the largest female woolly monkey.

Assumption : Size is the Primary Factor in determining the dominance.

As if Assumption is True if justifies the Conlustion.

I would go with A . (taking chance)....

RK..

guys what is OA ...?

I also choose D because it can be infered from the passage. They only aother solution I had in consideration was A, but there could be another factor than size which determines the dominance of a male.
