A. if, when other animals are studied in as much depth, similar patterns would be found
B. if other animals were studied with as much depth they would exhibit similar patterns
C. would similar patterns be found in other animals if they were studied in as much depth
D. whether similar patterns would be exhibited in other animals that were studied with as much depth
E. whether other animals would exhibit similar patterns if they were studied in as much depth


Apart from "with as depth" d also have another problem.

the meaning presented by "animals that were studied" make no sense in this context. we need the meaing of "if they were..."

I am not sure why in option E were is used, shouldn't it be are, what's the justification to use past conditional, especially when the non underlined portion in the presnt tense.

It is unclear whether chimpanzees are unique among nonhuman species in their ability to learn behaviors from one another, or if, when other animals are studied in as much depth, similar patterns would be found.

(A) if, when other animals are studied in as much depth, similar patterns would be found. Whether ....or if, is not idiomatic
(B) if other animals were studied with as much depth they would exhibit similar patterns. Whether ....or if, is not idiomatic
(C) would similar patterns be found in other animals if they were studied in as much depth. Incorrect, comparing chimpanzees to similar patterns
(D) whether similar patterns would be exhibited in other animals that were studied with as much depth. Incorrect, comparing chimpanzees to similar patterns
(E) whether other animals would exhibit similar patterns if they were studied in as much depth. Correct

"If I were to drive a car, I would put my seat belts on"

"Were" is used in hypothetical situation..

The situation does not exist so to say anything which isn't certain or a fact or a situation we use hypothetical...

" If I were you, I'd kill him"
Here the situation does not exist... I'm stating my opinion which RIGHT Now does not exist.. so I use "were"

In the question , the study hasn't been done yet( in much deeper depth) so we have a possiblity that other animals also exhibit bla bla...

Right now the situation is - chimpanzees are unique...
But we don't know about other animals...so if we were( hypothetical/ not present right now) to study animals in depth , we would (hypothetical) see that other animals exhibit too and hence chimpanzees are not unique...

You have to understand the logic that -
Right now- chimpanzees are unique
We don't know about other animals .. IF we were study( we have studies yet) we would....
