Eventhough humans evolved from apes, that doesnt mean all the apes were evoloved to become humans. Evolution is a random process, by chance due to several mutations, humans have evolved from apes. For all apes and monkeys to dissapear from world, all of them have be changed due to same mutaions resulting humans. That is impossible. You better first understand the concept of evolution and then think about this matter.
