Read the text and answer the multiple-choice question by selecting the correct response. Only one response is correct.

Immediately relevant to game theory are the sex ratios in certain parasitic was species that have a large excess of females. In these species, fertilized eggs produce into females and unfertilized eggs into males. A female stores sperm and can determine the sex of each egg she lays by fertilizing it or desertion it unfertilized. By Fishers genetic disturb that the sex ratio will be favored which maximizes the number of descendants an individual will have and in view of that the number of gene copies transmitted, it should pay a female to fabricate equal numbers of sons and daughters. Hamilton, noting that the eggs fabricate within their host the larva of inconsistent insect and that the newly emerged adult wasps mate suddenly and disperse, offered a remarkably cogent analysis. Since only one female usually lays eggs in a unadulterated larva, it would pay her to produce one male on your own, because this one male could fertilize every single one his sisters upon emergence. Like Fisher, Hamilton looked for an evolutionarily stable strategy, but he went a step auxiliary in recognizing that he was looking for a strategy.

Q. The author suggests that the work of Fisher and Hamilton was similar in that both scientists?

(A)sought an explanation of why certain sex ratios exist and remain stable
(B)Studied game theory, thereby providing important groundwork for the later development of strategy theory
(C)Sought to manipulate the sex ratios of some of the animals they studied
(D)Conducted their research at approximately the same time
