@manvir,

Happy to help. Let's take a look at (C).

(C) says, "the highly complex behavior of a dense mass of thousands of ants"

In passage A, the climate trends were described as employing large
numbers of variables and as able to be effectively simulated by
utilizing parallel computing methods. The closest thing we have to
this in passage B is the example about ant colonies, as these ant
colonies also feature huge numbers of variables (which are the ants
themselves) and function together as a complex whole. This is why (C)
makes sense, so it's the correct answer choice.

Does this make sense? Let us know if you have any other questions!
