option 4 is correct.

exhibit is needed.....will exhibit is incorrect.....that leaves 1, 4 and 5

1 is awkward (out)

5 says.....exhibit the kind of curiosity where new patterns.....'where' is used for places and hence is wrong in this context...also usage of 'are' is incorrect....'are' means that it always happens whereas the sentence demands probability because the Jane Goodal collected data which proved something.

4 is correct.

Yes.

By imitation and practice

Here, both are acting as nouns.

IMO 4.

Ok guys here is my take on this.

1. When you say "X so that Y", It implies X is the action taken towards the goal Y, Ex: I studied hard (X) so that I can get a good score(Y). In the question ''kind of curiosity" is not an action nor is "new patterns of behavior and expression" a goal.
So you can eliminate A,B and C.

2. "Where" is a pronoun to modify places or location. "Where" is used in the wrong context in option E. Eliminate.

3. "Which" is modifying "the kind of curiosity"- Perfect. So the correct answer is Option D.

I initially struggled on this question. Now I got the reasoning.

Hope it helps!

In her 26 years in the forests of Gombe, Jane Goodall collected data that proved that chimpanzees exhibit the kind of curiosity so that new patterns of behavior and expression can be passed on from each one to others by imitating and practicing

Meaning of the sentence : based on her experience, it is deduced that chimpanzees does something.

Issue
1) It is an observation which is true and hence Future tense is incorrect here.
2) "so that" or "so as" provide reason for some actions -> And options A,B,C is providing the reasons for exhibiting the behavior -> I think the usage is not wrong.
3) One to another is correct here as the new patterns are passed from one chimpanzee to another.
4) imitating and practicing are of the form Verb+ing which is a noun form. If we have a proper noun, the proper nouns are preferred. Hence imitation and practice is more preferred.

1) exhibit the kind of curiosity so that new patterns of behavior and expression can be passed on from each one to others by imitating and practicing
Issue 3 and 4

2) will exhibit the kind of curiosity so that new patterns of behavior and expression can be passed on from one to another by imitating and practicing
Issue 1 and 4

3) will exhibit the kind of curiosity so that new patterns of behavior and expression can be passed on from one to another by imitation and practicing
Issue 1 and 4

4) exhibit the kind of curiosity by which new patterns of behavior and expression can be passed on from one to another by imitation and practice
Correct

5) exhibit the kind of curiosity where new patterns of behavior and expression are passed on to others by imitation and practice
Where -> is a specific place.
Passed from whom ? it is should be specified.

In her 26 years in the forests of Gombe, Jane Goodall collected data that proved that chimpanzees exhibit the kind of curiosity so that new patterns of behavior and expression can be passed on from each one to others by imitating and practicing

1) exhibit the kind of curiosity so that new patterns of behavior and expression can be passed on from each one to others by imitating and practicing -- usage of so that is used to provide a reason ; each one to others is incorrect
2) will exhibit the kind of curiosity so that new patterns of behavior and expression can be passed on from one to another by imitating and practicing -- usage of future tense is incorrect as the statement is a fact ; usage of so that is used to provide a reason
3) will exhibit the kind of curiosity so that new patterns of behavior and expression can be passed on from one to another by imitation and practicing - same as B ; usage of so that is used to provide a reason
4) exhibit the kind of curiosity by which new patterns of behavior and expression can be passed on from one to another by imitation and practice - Correct
5) exhibit the kind of curiosity where new patterns of behavior and expression are passed on to others by imitation and practice -- usage of where

'so that' implies that chimpanzees are actually thinking, 'Hmm... if i exhibit curiosity, then i'll be able to catch on to my fellow chimps' behavior patterns. Hey, that sounds like a great idea! I think I'll do that!"

In her 26 years in the forests of Gombe, Jane Goodall collected data that proved that chimpanzees exhibit the kind of curiosity so that new patterns of behavior and expression can be passed on from each one to others by imitating and practicing

A. exhibit the kind of curiosity so that new patterns of behavior and expression can be passed on from each one to others by imitating and practicing

B. will exhibit the kind of curiosity so that new patterns of behavior and expression can be passed on from one to another by imitating and practicing

C. will exhibit the kind of curiosity so that new patterns of behavior and expression can be passed on from one to another by imitation and practice

D. exhibit the kind of curiosity by which new patterns of behavior and expression can be passed on from one to another by imitation and practice

E. exhibit the kind of curiosity where new patterns of behavior and expression are passed on to others by imitation and practice

OA is D, but I don't understand the use of "by which" and why "so that" is not correct, I know that "so that" implies intention, I think "so that" is ok here.
