Male and female mosquitoes both feed on fruit nectar and juice, but only the female mosquito engages in haematophagy, or as it is more commonly known, blood drinking. Female mosquitoes have developed abilities to ensure they locate their prey, relying on an acute sense of smell and the ability to detect body heat. The female’s special diet is necessitated by the mosquito’s need for protein to aid in the development of its eggs.

The information above is structured to lead to which of the following conclusions?

A. Male mosquitoes lack the ability to detect body heat.
B. Male mosquitoes occasionally engage in haematophagy even though they do not require a special diet.
C. The female mosquito’s sense of smell is more highly developed than the male’s sense of smell.
D. A diet consisting solely of nectar and fruit juice would be insufficient to sustain the mosquito population.
E. Female mosquitoes do not consume as much nectar and fruit juice as do male mosquitoes.

This answer is right only if we assume the mentioned special diet is blood, which contains protein.
