Millions of female bats rear their pups in Bracken Cave. Although the mothers all leave the cave nightly, on their return each mother is almost always swiftly reunited with her own pup. Since the bats’ calls are their only means of finding one another, and a bat pup cannot distinguish the call of its mother from that of any other adult bat, it is clear that each mother bat can recognize the call of her pup.

The argument seeks to do which one of the following?

(A) derive a general conclusion about all members of a group from facts known about representative members of that group

(B) establish the validity of one explanation for a phenomenon by excluding alternative explanations

(C) support, by describing a suitable mechanism, the hypothesis that a certain phenomenon can occur

(D) conclude that members of two groups are likely to share a certain ability because of other characteristics they share

(E) demonstrate that a general rule applies in a particular case

The argument tries to explain how the mother recognizes her pup by the facts that exclude other possibilities: the mother and the pup recognize each other only by calling and the pup can't distinguish the call of the mother, then the mother must be able to recognize its pup. Answer B
