If you love to hear about wildlife conservation then you're in a familiar territory because that's what this question is all about.

Option A - INCORRECT.
This is a logical sentence however the question's aim is to get ''served on a different plate though the same meal''. Unneeded repetition of question.

Otion B - INCORRECT.
Here there is a grammatica confusion. When talking about ecosystems and places, we expect that the verb that follows should be in plural tense and not singular as presented in this option.

Option C - INCORRECT.
Here, we have a simple, well organized, detailed and cincise nrration tha'd easily have passed for the best option but for its inconsistent tense usage. There exists a continuous sense of action in the passage which should have made ''provide'' as used here to be instead used as ''provides''. Such a waste.

Option D - INCORRECT.
There's no logic and sense here. Can sombody explain to me what the article ''a'' is doing in that expression? Totally murdered the expression. Article ''the'' expresses a subject that's been talked about but ''a'' shows no direction.

Option E - CORRECT.
Here, we have a sense of tense - agreement. If you note vivivdly that as against what obtains in B above, this option used ''are'' instead of ''is'' which shows plurality. It's parts are in correspondence.
