(See the complete passage discussion here: lsat/viewtopic.php?t=11555)
The correct answer choice is (E)
In the third paragraph of the passage the author discusses the various behaviors of the pronghorn that may be explained as relict behavior.
Answer choice (A): This choice is far more absolute than provided for by the author, who only says that herding is beneficial, not that herding grazers never get attacked.
Answer choice (B): The point is that they do not need to graze in herds, but they still do, so it must have something to do with past stimuli.
Answer choice (C): There is nothing mentioned in the passage that allows this conditional relationship to be drawn, so this answer choice should be eliminated.
Answer choice (D): While the third paragraph does refer to a preference for athletic prowess, there is no assertion that only the fastest is chosen to mate.
Answer choice (E): This is the correct answer choice. Again, since the point is that they herd without the necessity for herding protection, this answer choice must be true.
