The question asks to identify an option that contributes most to an explanation of the difference between gecko populations in urban and rural areas.

In rural areas ---> no lighted buildings ---> no gathering (congregation) of insects around lights ---> House gecko not stopping Mourning gecko feeding on insects ---> probably no starving of Mourning gecko ---> stable population


In urban areas ---> lighted buildings ---> gathering (congregation) of insects around lights ---> House gecko stopping Mourning gecko feeding on insects ---> probably starving of Mourning gecko ---> reducing Mourning gecko population after introduction of House gecko.

Hence D.

Is a comma missing after congregate? For me, the absence of comma makes it difficult to understand.

I picked D, but I actually think C is pretty good. If the geckos are being brought into ports, which tend to be in cities, that might explain why there are more of them in cities.
