    Hi,
    I feel the answers are:
    1.any longer-no longer
    2.probably have-have should be replaced by had becuse we are talking about primitive(earliest) ancestors who live no longer and died ages ago.
    Are these right?

    1. no longer - you can encounter this problem also like "not longer"

    2. probably had - time agreement!Our ancestors are not alive so this is why we should talk about them in Past tense!!!

    Success!
