1. Many primates today have hands that can perfectly grasp the form of a banana. Which of the following choices best explains the perfect fit between their hands and bananas? (Analysis of evolutionary adaptation – HOCS) A. The banana evolved over time to better fit the shape of a primate’s hand. B. The primate’s ancestors that were better able to eat and hold onto bananas were more likely to survive, and therefore reproduce, over time. (Correct) C. The diet of the primate’s ancestors consisted almost entirely of bananas and therefore their hands evolved over time to better hold bananas. D. The perfect fit is purely coincidental. E. Primates use their hands to grasp many things such as tree branches. The similarity between the shape of tree branches and bananas allowed the primate to be able to hold bananas so well.
