Hi @meisen, thanks for your post.

There is a great deal of textual support in the passage for answer choice (D) - that the Ultimatum Game is implied to be "a type of one-shot, anonymous interaction." See lines 51-57.

Answer choice (E) is wrong because the Ultimatum Game is not, itself, "proof that our emotional apparatus has been shaped by millions of years of living in small groups." It is possible that people's *responses* to this game reflect an emotional evolution, but not the game itself.

Hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
