I would say the answer is D. The trick is that the passage specifies the ADULT males dominating ALL females. So, it must be true that if a female is dominating a male, the male must NOT be an adult.

A seems correct, but one cannot infer size as the major reason of dominance. Sex could be the primary reason with size being a close second and the passage would remain true.

B does not need to be true. Adolescent males are irrelevant to either sentence in the passage.

C. Again the key to the passage is the male being adult. This could be concerning adolescent males which are irrelevant to the passage.

E. It doesn't matter if the female is adult, an adult male will dominate it.

D is correct. I confused Adult with Adolescent.
The logic is If A then B leads to if Not B then Not A

I believe that answer should be D.
