Bengal tigers, a near extinct species of tiger, are known to suffer extraordinary hardships when placed in captivity. Captured Bengal tigers rarely produce offspring and contract a much greater number of illnesses during their captivity, yet the consensus among the zoological community is that captivity is the best opportunity to save this species from extinction.

Which of the following best explains the apparent discrepancy in the statements above?

(A) Captive Bengal tigers reproduce at a rate slightly lower than that of wild Bengal tigers.
(B) The majority of the diseases contracted by wild Bengal tigers are treatable but not curable.
(C) The hardships suffered by captive Bengal tigers are not as severe as those suffered by other species of large cats.
(D) The diseases contracted by Bengal tigers in the wild generally cause sterility in the male of the species.
(E) The data from which the Bengal tiger species was determined to be approaching extinction was in error.

+1 for D.

(D) The diseases contracted by Bengal tigers in the wild generally cause sterility in the male of the species. --> Correct

The idea of sparsely producing offspring is any day better than not producing any offspring at all.

Hence, D.

Captured Bengal tigers rarely produce offspring and contract a much greater number of illnesses during their captivity, yet the consensus among the zoological community is that captivity is the best opportunity to save this species from extinction.

Which of the following best explains the apparent discrepancy in the statements above?

(A) Captive Bengal tigers reproduce at a rate slightly lower than that of wild Bengal tigers. -- Incorrect -- a slightly lower rate might be almost the same or it deepens the paradox
(B) The majority of the diseases contracted by wild Bengal tigers are treatable but not curable. -- Irrelevant -- if it all this further deepens the paradox as we know the tigers in wild will survive even when they are ill in most of the cases
(C) The hardships suffered by captive Bengal tigers are not as severe as those suffered by other species of large cats. -- Irrelevant
(D) The diseases contracted by Bengal tigers in the wild generally cause sterility in the male of the species. -- Correct -- So from this we can infer that when Wild male Bengal tigers become ill ,they become infertile and CANNOT reproduce
(E) The data from which the Bengal tiger species was determined to be approaching extinction was in error. -- Irrelevant

Answer D
