Explanation

Is E wrong because it mentions nothing about making the tool rather just using it? I limited the answers down to E and B and I didn't end up picking B because I wasn't sure if advanced hunting tools are necessarily sophisticated.

Hi @avif,

Thanks for the question! Yup, you got why (E) is wrong. (E) is talking about using a tool, not necessarily making it, so it’s not really relevant to this stimulus (which discusses making tools). It’s not too far to call advanced hunting weapons “sophisticated tools” in the given context, which is talking about controversies in paleontology and prehistoric human ancestors. So (B) is a fine answer here, and the correct one.

Hope this helps! Feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.
