Recently developed tourism infrastructure, including ten-story hotels and neon-lit discos, is obscuring the moonlight, disorienting the female turtles as they seek out beaches to lay their eggs. Often the confusion leads them to assume that the hotel pools are the sea and they end up laying their eggs in the pool flowerbeds. Once the eggs hatch, the hatchlings are unable to find their way to the sea and die. The stringent building regulations that protected the turtles in the past are being flouted openly by organized criminals who either bribe or terrorize officials into turning a blind eye.

Which of the following can be inferred from the above passage?

A Scarcity of turtles results in ecological imbalance of sea.

B Chemicals in pool water are not safe for turtles.

C Moonlight is the only source of light for turtles.

D Turtles are guided by moonlight.

E Organized gangs are ignoring building restrictions.

option E is quite tempting but look at the word ignoring , they are not ignoring they openly flout the restrictions so that's why E is wrong and d is the best choice

Obscuring moonlight is cause of disoriented turtles.

D goes along with this.
