A

533

B

839

C

1724

D

3700

Answer

When there are no more individuals of a species (plant or animal) alive anywhere in the world, the species is said to be extinct. Extinction is also known as the process of dying out. The process is a completely natural part of evolution. But sometimes extinctions happen at a higher and a faster rate than usual. Factors such as large body size, small population, and position at a higher trophic level favour extinction. 533 animal species have become extinct since 1600 AD.
So, the correct answer is '533'.
