Which of the following best completes the passage below?
Monarch butterflies, whose average life span is nine months, migrate from the midwestern United States to selected forests outside Mexico City. It takes at least three generations of monarchs to make the journey, so the great-great-grandchildren who finally arrive in the Mexican forests have never been there before. Yet they return to the same trees their forebears left. Scientists theorize that monarchs, like homing pigeons, map their routes according to the earth’s electromagnetic fields. As a first step in testing this theory, lepidopterists plan to install a low-voltage transmitter inside one grove of “butterfly treesâ€

The punch line is " As a first step...." so the case that the Butterflies are mapping e.magnetically is not yet established.

B for this

Yet another vote for B.

A is irrelevant.
D and E are wrong, as we are concerned about the results of an experiment with low voltage emitters.

C - The argument is not concerned whether butterflies are affected positively or negatively by low voltage electricity.

Definitely B, if the scientists can prove that butterflies are sensitive to electricity then their theory holds.
