for humans is a native to is correct
but animals is a native of is the right usage I guess
and since it is still native to Europe was native to cannot be used.
Is it answer option B?

B is incorrect because it has which. Which is referring to Australian continent which is illogical here.

Note : 'native of' is used only for people, yes. the situation is a little more complicated for 'native to', which could potentially refer either to people or to species/things.

Hence, since we have another error in B, we can eliminate B and mark A as the answer.

NOTE : NATIVE TO is used for animals..For ex Kangaroo is native to Austrialia
and NATIVE OF is used for humans... For ex: Anurag is native of India.


So choices A and D remain.
A is correct option. Cause is in the clause and result starting with ING-verb.
D is incorrect because which is referring to the period 1850. Had been means it is still native to Europe.

Hope this is useful..

Native to X - denotes that species belong to X region

Native of X - meaning humans belonging to that region - maybe ancestors from that region or born there


Boils down to two choices which uses native of X correctly.


blah blah, causing X - it modifies the entire clause correctly which shows a result of an action

second option which caused doesn't fit the bill.

A. is native to Europe but was accidentally introduced into the Australian continent in the 1850s, causing ----Correct. "causing"
modifies the previous clause "accidentally introduced into the Australian"

B. is a native of Europe but was accidentally introduced into the Australian continent in the 1850s, which caused ----"native of". "which" is a relative pronoun and needs a noun antecedent.
C. was a native of Europe but was accidentally introduced into the Australian continent in the 1850s, causing------incorrect tense.
rabbit is still existing, only its number has been brought under control

D. had been native to Europe but was accidentally introduced into the Australian continent in the 1850s, which caused -----sames error as C
E. had been a native of Europe but was accidentally introduced into the Australian continent in the 1850s, causing-----sames error as C

This question contains an error of idiom.
Native of is used for people and native to is used for animals.
Hence we are left with A and D only. Usage of "which" and tense is wrong in D.

A. is native to Europe but was accidentally introduced into the Australian continent in the 1850s, causing
B. is a native of Europe but was accidentally introduced into the Australian continent in the 1850s, which caused
C. was a native of Europe but was accidentally introduced into the Australian continent in the 1850s, causing
D. had been native to Europe but was accidentally introduced into the Australian continent in the 1850s, which caused
E. had been a native of Europe but was accidentally introduced into the Australian continent in the 1850s, causing
