However, cryptzoologists use methods more akin to the field of zoology to seek evidence to existence of such creatures, rather than study the legends formed around the creatures in human societies. Therefore, cryptozoology should not be classified as a branch of folklore studies. The above conclusion is properly drawn if which of the following is assumed? A) Unequivocal proof of the existence of the Yeti and the unicorn has been found. B) Cryptzoology is studied in prestigious universities all over the world. C) Folklorists investigate the legends themselves rather than try to prove them to be real. D) Some cryptzoologists are acclaimed anthropologists and folklorists. E) Folklorists often shy away from fieldwork.
