yes I think monarch and monarch butterfly are not same so B is the only option we left with but still initially the text was talking about earth electro-magneticity but suddenly electricity is odd option.

I had to choose between B and C. I erroneously chose B. I guess my take-away is to go with the simplier answer.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who went with D. Lesson learned, never assume.

I got tricked by this question real bad. I thought it was D but B makes more sense since if monarchs are repelled by the electricity it does not prove that they map their routes. Also it should be monarch butterflies not monarch. I must of went through fast through this problem

Sometimes we think too much into the answer. Had the statistics for the question not been provided. I would have chosen B straightaway.

I choose D.
But after Confirming OA as B. I reread the question stimulus. Where i forgot to read the piece of info "first step in testing this theory" . Now i can say that just first step to research is not enough to come into the conclusion of the goal. So D is wrong . B is apt .
C is wrong - positively and adversely ?? Ambiguous isn't it.
