It is certain that the Neanderthal could speak. Paleontologists have found a Neanderthal skeleton with a hyoid bone virtually identical to hyoid bones in humans. The hyoid bone is a small bone that connects the tongue and the larynx and allows a wider range of tongue and laryngeal movements.

The pattern of reasoning in the argument above is most closely matched by which of the following?
A. Most animals have eyes. Thus, the new species of fish just discovered must have eyes.
B. People are able to live in most climates on earth. The discovery of a skeleton in the Arctic indicates that some people are not able to live in all climates.
C. Cattle have four chambered stomachs that allow them to eat hard to digest plant fibers. This recently discovered mammal has a four chambered stomach, so it must eat plant fibers.
D. Plants use photosynthesis to manufacture food by absorbing the light of the sun. Therefore, any plant that has existed uses photosynthesis to eat.
E. No snakes have legs. Because the bones discovered by scientists have legs, they are not the bones of a snake.
