During the day in Lake Constance, the zooplankton D. hyaline departs for the depths where food is scarce and the water cold. D. galeata remains near the warm surface where food is abundant. Even though D. galeata grows and reproduces much faster, its population is often outnumbered by D. hyaline.

Which of the following, if true, most helps to resolve the apparent paradox?


A. The number of species of zooplankton living at the bottom of the lake is twice that of species living at the surface.

B. Predators of zooplankton, such as whitefish and perch, live and feed near the surface of the lake during the day.

C. In order to make the most of scarce food resources, D.hyaline matures more slowly than D. galeata.

D. galeata clusters under vegetation during the hottest part of the day to avoid the Sun’s rays.

E. galeata produces twice as many offspring per individual in any given period of time as does D. hyaline.

Is it C...If D. Hyaline matures more slowly than D. Galeta, population of D. Hyaline will outnumber the population of D Galeta.

C is good choice among given choices.

Clear B man.good question this.

B and C are the main contenders

B - Says why D.g population is less

C - Restates what is already given in the passage(D.g reproduces faster).Hence incorrect.

IMO the answer is B. Because only B gives a reason to why the population of D.G would decrease and D.H would remain unaffected.

Even though D. galeata grows and reproduces much faster, its population is often outnumbered by D. hyaline.

Option B says Predators of Zooplankton D. zylen live and feed near surface during the day. Predators are feeding on D.Z. not on D.G.
Then how would population of D.G. reduce?

Please clear my confusion.

The predators are of zooplankton and not of any specific kind. During day G is near the surface so predators eat more G.

Two possible explanations:

1. No. of eggs laid / offsprings produced by DH >DG:
Ans choice E is opposite to this info.

2. Life-span of DH >DG: Ans choice B.

Hence, IMO, Ans is choice B
