B

In situ conservation

C

Both A and B

D

None of the above

Answer

When we conserve and protect the whole ecosystem, its biodiversity at all levels is protected, for example we save the entire forest to save the tiger. 
This approach is called as in-situ (on site) conservation. 
However, when there are situations where an animal or plant is endangered or threatened and needs urgent measures to save it from extinction, ex-situ (off site) conservation is the desirable approach.
