@rpark, Happy to help!

(C) "What are the evolutionary origins of the human ability to make music?" is answered in the last paragraphs of both Passage A and Passage B.

We can also conclude that (C) is the correct answer by eliminating the other answer choices.
(A) is incorrect because both passages only discuss evolutionary advantages conferred by large brain size over the course of hominid evolution, not "on early hominids."
(B) is incorrect because Passage A does not discuss a relevant mother-infant connection.
(D) is incorrect because Passage B does not address the question of a shared neurological system.
(E) is incorrect because Passage B does not mention nor attempt to explain this discrepancy.

Does that help? Please let us know if you have any other questions!
