The author discusses the hypothesis that humans adapted as a result of their eating cooked food.
Is B wrong because the answer choice is stated as a conditional, while the argument is causal?
I feel like there is something else wrong with B but I can't put my finger on it. Can someone please help?

Answer B is much too strong for this author, Julie. Throughout the passage the author talks about what might be true and what the evidence suggests. He uses words like "possible" and "implication," which are less certain than the language in that answer choice. That's why we cannot select it - we don't have evidence strong enough to support it!
