answer choice - A. 'it' reffers to ethnicity, the noun in the sentence. u can determine that just by looking at choces C and D, which are wrong clearly, since the noun - ethnicity is already place after the underlined phrase making it only possible to have "it" instead of ethnicity in the underlined portion.

good example, here we see pronoun refarant comes after the pronoun. You normally don't see many such examples
