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.
