In first sentence, where it mentions:
"...all species of higher animals, reproduction requires the production of eggs but not necessarily the production of sperm."

Answer choice (B) says;
...some species higher animals don't produce eggs. which is against our statement.

(A): possible, some species of salamander have both males and female
(C): could be true, we aren't told exactly how many species of female-only higher animals there are
(D): we have no information that we can reject for both male and female members who are not very adaptive
(E): this also have no information related to children, but we do know children of species containing both males and females certainly could have genetics codes more similar to one parent than the other

Hope this answers your confusion!

Great write-up! A few edits for the grammar and clarity (how anal retentive is that?!):

Thus we know it's not possible.

(A) is possible, some species of salamander could have both males and female - after all, the one discussed in the stimulus is "a rare" one.

(C) could be true, we aren't told exactly how many species of female-only higher animals there are. Don't be fooled by the "rare" statement - it could mean that it's a rare salamander. All we know is that there are no higher animals that are female-only. For all we know, every single insect species is female-only.

(D) is out of scope. We have no information that we can reject for both male and female members who are not very adaptive

(E) is also out of scope. We do know that offspring of female-only species have nearly identical genes to their mothers, however we don't know much of anything about children of species containing both males and females. They certainly could have genetics codes more similar to one parent than the other

What is the best approach for could be true EXCEPT questions on LR?

I find my eyes moving from each answer choice to the stimulus and back again. The stimulus is so detail-oriented and chock full o' facts.

On the practical side, I suggest you circle the word "EXCEPT" and draw a line from it all the way down the left side of the answer choices. That way you notice the word "EXCEPT" each time you get to an answer choice.

On the deeper side, defer judgment on anything that looks possible as you look for what can't be true. You're looking for something that the stimulus disproves/makes impossible.

Some of these can definitely be tough!

I hope that helps.

Thanks Noah, that helps a lot! Yeah, the details really trip me up. I suppose this is when my paraphrasing abilities will come in handy.
