Hi,
can someone please help me in the "Primary Purpose" Question

1. The primary purpose of the passage is to
A. present several explanations for a well-known fact
B. suggest alternative methods for resolving a debate
C. argue in favor of a controversial theory
D. question the methodology used in a study
E. discuss the implications of a research finding

Why Option A is rejected.


No where in the passage , it is mentioned that the passage is presenting explanation of a "well known fact"..
E is more elegant.

Approx 5-6 mins on this passage. All correct. A simple passage on the whole. And yes, this is a GMATPrep Question. Cheers.

I feel there is serious flaw in the question 5 itself

5. According to the passage, if the researchers had NOT found that two extinct carnivore species were free of tooth breakage, the researchers would have concluded that

A. the difference in breakage frequencies could have been the result of damage to the fossil remains in the La Brea pits

passage part concerning to above question

They rejected preservational bias because a total absence of breakage in two extinct species demonstrated that the fractures were not the result of abrasion within the pits.

This additional word "tooth" in the question is enough to confuse completely while understanding question itself.
