A simple example that they did was opening a tube with a cap on it, as both the 2 years old and the monkeys watched, the 2 year olds managed to do it but, the monkeys were trying to break it open. in the end it was 74% - 2 years old children  &  33% to monkeys, over all 2 year old children are mainly smarter then monkeys. </li></ul>
