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 earthâ€™s electromagnetic fields. As a first step in testing this theory, lepidopterists plan to install a low-voltage transmitter inside one grove of â€œbutterfly treesâ€

HAS TO BE (C)
(D) - The lepidopterists test can only conclude monarchs sensitivity to electricity.In (D) it is far too concluded.
(E) - same reasons as (D)
Only to (B) and (C)
Prefer (C) because "whether positively or adversely" goes with "either especially attracted to the grove with the transmitter or especially repelled by it"

I'm going to say B here...

The key is the following phrase: "As a first step in testing this theory"..

Choice D takes it too far...

We need an initial step
