"Jarvisâ€™ work has suggested that differences in growth rates may influence the length of time that an individual performs a task, regardless of its age. "

Passage mentions that :
" naked mole rat societies, on the other hand, differences in behavior are related primarily to reproductive status (reproduction being limited to the queen and a few males), body size, and perhaps age."

So it is passage which puts age into question .not Jarvis work .

6. According to the passage, naked mole rat colonies may differ from all other known vertebrate groups in which of the following ways?
(A) Naked mole rats exhibit an extreme form of altruism.
(B) Naked mole rats are cooperative breeders.
(C) Among naked mole rats, many males are permitted to breed with a single dominant female.
(D) Among naked mole rats, different tasks are performed at different times in an individualâ€™s life.
(E) Among naked mole rats, fighting results in the selection of a breeding female.

Until recently, scientists did not know of a close vertebrate analogue to the extreme form of altruism observed in eusocial insects like ants and bees, whereby individuals cooperate, sometimes even sacrificing their own opportunities to survive and reproduce, for the good of others. However, such a vertebrate society may exist among underground colonies of the highly social rodent Heterocephalus glaber, the naked mole rat.

in this question the OA is A and i don't know why because in the passage it says that the altruism of eusocial is almost same to naked mole rats. how that differ's?
