When it was first classified by biologists, the elephant shrew was placed with the bicolored shrew in a cladogram. Since then, additional evidence has been found that caused scientists to remove the elephant shrew from the shrew group and place it in a new position in a cladogram. In the new position, the elephant shrew is now closer to elephants than to shrews. What evidence would have been strong enough to support this change?

A. mating experiments
B. homologous structures
C. body fossils
D. DNA sequences
