Though many insects die soon after reproducing for the first time, some may live for five yrs after the survival of the next generation has been secured. Among the latter are some insects that work for the benefit of the ecosystem- such as bees
Which of the following can be properly inferred from info above?
(a) Survival of species, rather than of the individual, is the goal of most insect populations
(b) Insects that do not play a vital role in the ecosystem are more likely to die after reproducing for the first time
(c) Most bees live well beyond the onset of the generation that follows them
(d) Those bees that reproduce do not always die soon after reproducing for the first time
(e) Most insects are hatched self-sufficient and do not need to be cared by adult insects
B is not possible. It takes an observation made in the passage and spins it into a fact. For all we know, mosquitoes (which is really quite a pest) live longer than 5 years after reproduction. The fact that it is not mentioned doesn't mean it is not a reality.
