Scientists generally assume that animals confronted by a complex choice of actions do not calculate the consequences of each choice, and that their behavior is largely a matter of ------- responses to environmental stimuli or cues.
Answer with explanation:
- choice among
The first clause provides that animals "do not calculate the consequences" of alternative actions. Ideally, the second clause should characterize their behavior as a result of something contrary to a conscious calculation. The third answer choice provides just this sort of characterization; a "preprogrammed" response is instinctive and merely reactive rather than calculated. Thus the third answer choice is the best response.

Examples of multiple Choice Questions (Select one answer's choice)
Some modern anthropologists hold that biological evolution has shaped not only human morphology but also human behavior. The role those anthropologists ascribe to evolution is not of dictating the details of human behavior but one of imposing constraints - ways of feeling, thinking, and acting that ''come naturally'' in archetypal situations in any culture. Our ''frailties'' - emotions and motives such as rage, fear, greed, gluttony, joy, lust, love-may be a very mixed assortment quality: we are, as we say, ''in the grip'' of them. And thus they give us our sense of constraints.
Unhappily, some of those frailties our need for ever-increasing security among them is presently maladaptive. Yet beneath the overlay of cultural detail, they, too, are said to be biological, in direction, and therefore as natural to us as are our appendixes. We would need to comprehend thoroughly their adaptive origins in order to understand how badly they guide us now. And we might then begin to resist their pressure.
- The author implies that control to any extent over the ''frailties'' that constrain our behavior is though to presuppose:
- That those frailties and adaptive are recognized as currently beneficial and adaptive
- That there is little or no overlay of cultural detail that masks their true nature.
- That there are cultures in which those frailties do not ''come naturally'' and from which such control can be learned
- A full understanding of why those frailties evolved and of how they function now
- A thorough grasp of the principle that cultural detail in human behavior can differ arbitrarily from society to society.
