A

Kept in captivity for breeding

B

Exotic and established

C

Exclusively found in a zone

D

Extinct due to calamity

Answer

Endemic means a species which is native to a place and is not found anywhere else in the world. Endemic basically means indigenous. The more endemic species at a place more is the biodiversity of that place. For example, the Nilgiri tahr also known as Nilgiri Ibex is endemic to the Nilgiri Hills and some part of Western Ghats of Kerala.
So, the correct answer is 'Exclusively found in a zone'.
