okay, i assume you have already struck off C,D and E.

The cheetah seems to be headed for extinction because,.........., the species has so little genetic variation that it is extremely vulnerable to enviornmental change

The missing part should give you an answer for 'why the species has so little genetic variation?'

A. The species has little genetic variation resulting from blah blah
B. The species has little gentic variation as a result of blah blah

Which one do you now think is correct? I hope you say B.
