Pro-social, tolerant and cooperative species

Pick a quesiton from the provided list. Preferred question:

“According to Hardy, humans evolved to become a pro-social, tolerant and cooperative species because of the emergence of allo-parenting about 1.8mya. Novel rearing conditions among a line of early hominins meant that children grew up depending on a wider range of caregivers than just their mothers – and this dependence produced selection pressures that favoured individuals who were better at figuring out the mental states of others. No other great ape species does this. Describe, explain, and evaluate Hardy’s allo-parenting hypothesis. Is it plausible?”
