Hi @JayDee8732, thanks for your post. This is a Main Point question. Let's analyze the stimulus first.
P: Since new traits evolve gradually
P: Something like human language, albeit cruder, must exist in some species from which humans evolved
P: But humans did not evolve from chimpanzees
C: So it simply does not follow that chimpanzees have anything like human language.
Answer choice (B) identifies this main conclusion: that the assumption that something like human language must exist in some species from which humans evolved has no clearcut linguistic implications for chimpanzees.
Hope this helps!
