There is evidence to suggest that our cave-dwelling
ancestors polished many of their flints to a degree far
surpassing what was necessary for hunting purposes. It
seems, therefore, that early humans possessed an
aesthetic sense.
Which one of the following statements, if true, most
seriously weakens the argument?
(A) Most flints used by our cave-dwelling ancestors
were not highly polished.
(B) The caves in which the highly polished flints
were found are unadorned by cave paintings.
(C) There is evidence that these highly polished
flints were used for display in religious
ceremonies.
(D) Flints were often used by early humans for
everyday chores other than hunting.
(E) Any benefits that an aesthetic sense would have
given to cave-dwelling humans are poorly
understood.

Yes,you may be right in considering that,but then this point strengthen the argument that the "early humans possessed an
aesthetic sense" .But question asks otherwise.
