"A" is best. attempt to control is right usage. Native to is correct. When u talk abt humans u shud use native of. Past perfect is not right as the first part of the sentence suggests that they still are native

Karun: Please underline the area which needs to be corrected.....

Just highlight the text that needs to be underlined and press the "u" button that us in between "i" and "Quote" buttons. That helps everyone in our collective effort to answer/discuss and would benefit everyone.

Thanks to the wonderful questions that you have been posting . Keep going....
