    Humans with our fancy frontal cortexes, opposable thumbs and heat dispersal mechanisms are better suited to adapt than dinosaurs.

    Also, these people weren't human.

    But they were humanoid.

    If they were walking and talking, they share the frontal cortex advantage.

    If it's your head canon that those women turned from pampered dwellers in a safe underground city to happy capable cave women, I am fine with that. But it's not mine.

    If we're talking short-term quick adaptation, then probably yes. Long term remains to be seen, after all, as H. Sapiens we'd have to go about a thousand times longer than we've existed already to actually prove that. Our very adaptation skills may prove to be our downfall (e,g, pollution to such a degree the greenhouse effect cannot be stopped anymore). Also, I doubt humanity would have survived the consequences of that impact that supposedly killed off the dinosaurs. Perhaps we could, perhaps we couldn't , but our mammal ancestors that survived were very different from us today (most notably, a lot smaller).

    If it happened today, same size of rock and everything, some humans would survive the aftermath. But not very many.
