I would like an explanation too. the only relevant part that would suggest the answer is A is "The anatomy of their wings suggests that they did not evolve into the class of birds." but this seems like quiet the inference

Answer to your question lies in this line of last para:
The second hypothesis seems unlikely because large pterosaurs could not have landed in trees without damaging their wings

(A) They were unable to fold their wings when not in use.

Landing on trees means non usage of wings.
Since pterosaurs can NOT fold their wings, they end up damaging the same.

basically for #7 if you don't know what "crest of waves" means you get it wrong.

I picked (A) because I thought reptiles have sharp teeth and I honestly thought the waves mentioned in the last paragraph were meant to be air waves

Efforts to explain how the pterosaurs became air-
borne have led to suggestions that they launched them-
selves by jumping from cliffs, by dropping from trees.
(45) or even by rising into light winds from the crests of
waves.


you can see here that the prior belief about P was they lived around water bodies(waves is the clue here). Though i understand that even winds have waves, in fact each physical thing has waves but out of all options, this is the only deductive answer. According to me this is a poor question by GMAT

Can someone please explain question 5? Where in the passage is it given that these animals were not able to fold their wings when not in use ?

4/4 in 9:48 on the first 4 questions. 6/7 total in 14:16 with the last one wrong. Last one is hard but the mention of waves implies that the creatures may have lived near bodies of water. None of the other choices can be inferred. I chose D as that was the most relevant choice and was spending too much time. Hard question for sure and on the actual GMAT, a question such as that is not worth spending too much time since the changes of getting it right are low and you will lose time on other Verbal questions. Definitely a 750+ difficulty. Good, dense passage.
