Question of the Day (09-Apr-17)
Answer the question based on the passage given below.
According to a research published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, based on predictions of sea ice extent from climate change models, the penguins are likely to see their numbers plummet by 95% by 2100. Emperor penguins, the largest species, are unique in that they are the only penguins that breed during the harsh Antarctic winters. Colonies gather far inland after long treks across sea ice, where the females lay just one egg that is tended by the male. What is more, the extent of sea ice cover influences the abundance of krill and the fish species that eat them- both food sources for the penguins.
Which of the following can be validly concluded from the above paragraph?
