Online hackers implant the viruses directly onto the drives of various host computers in exactly the right numbers for any suitable size of host hard-drive. If they planted too many viruses in a host system, the developing viral streams would compete with each other to the death for data and space. If too few viruses were implanted, portions of the main virus would decay, killing the entire stream.

Which of the following conclusions can properly be drawn from the information above?


A) The size of the smallest host system that a hacker could theoretically infect can be determined from the hacker’s virus implanting capability.

B) Host systems lack any effective defenses against the form of predation practiced by Online hackers.

C) Online Hackers learn from experience how many viruses to implant into the hard-drive of different host systems.

D) Failure to implant enough viruses would lead to the death of the developing viral streams more quickly than would implanting too many viruses.

E) Online Hackers use visual clues to calculate the size of a host hard-drive
