Exquisitely adapted for life in one of Earth's harshest environments, polar bears can survive for 20 years or more on the Arctic Circle's glacial ice. At home in a waste where temperatures reach minus 50 degrees Fahrenheit, these largest members of the bear family are a striking example of natural selection at work. With two layers of fur over a subcutaneous layer of blubber, polar bears are well adapted to resist heat loss. Their broad, snowshoe-like paws and sharp, curved claws enable them to traverse the ice with ease. Formidable hunters, these monarchs of the icy waste even possess the capacity to scent prey from a distance of 20 miles.

In the context of the passage's final sentence "capacity" most nearly means

A) Faculty
B) Stature
C) Dimensions
D) Spaciousness
E) Intelligence

Answer should be A. Capacity here means ability which is the meaning of faculty.

Capacity in the sense of able to do something.

As such, the faculty, the power to do something.

capacity in this text means some kind of ability. That's why other options are gone
