Susceptibility to extinction is due to

A

Large body size

B

Small population

C

High trophic level

D

All of the above

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.
So, the correct answer is 'All of the above'.
