If at high altitudes, birds become rare, the plants likely to disappear are

A

Pine

B

Orchids

C

Oak

D

Rhododendrons

Answer

Pines seeds are mainly small and winged, and are anemophilous generally, which means that the seeds are dispersed by wind. However, some seeds are larger and they have only a vestigial wing and are needed to be dispersed by a bird. Thus, If at high altitudes, birds become rare, the plants likely to disappear are Pine plants. Oaks are not generally found at such high altitudes.
So, the correct answer is 'Pine'.
