The Lichtenstein night adder, a species of snake, drives away Silver-spotted Skipper insects and takes their nests for its own. When such a nest is destroyed, the adders wander, never spending consecutive days in the same place, until they come across another nest of the Silver-spotted Skipper insect. Clearly, the Lichtenstein night adder does not know how to make nests of its own.

Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument?


A. Many sub-species of the adder are known to make their own nests from scratch.

B.In the summer months, the Lichtenstein night adder snake prefers sleeping by hanging from a tree and not staying anywhere on the ground level.

C. In Nigram and Tenitol, countries where Silver-spotted Skippers are not found, the Lichtenstein night adder makes its home in the nests of Cicada insects.

D. The two species of snakes that are closely related to the Lichtenstein night adder species do not live in nests at all.

E. There are no significant differences between the nest of a Silver-spotted Skipper insect and that of some species of adder snakes that make nests of their own.

Correct, a strengthener.

D. The two species of snakes that are closely related to the Lichtenstein night adder species do not live in nests at all.
Incorrect, other species are not in question.

E. There are no significant differences between the nest of a Silver-spotted Skipper insect and that of some species of adder snakes that make nests of their own.
Incorrect, irrelevant. Difference between nest is not in question.
