    Correct Answer
    B. Keeping the young warm 
    Explanation
    Webbed feet are a characteristic of certain aquatic animals, such as ducks and geese. These animals use their webbed feet to swim efficiently in water. However, in this question, the correct answer is "Keeping the young warm." This is because webbed feet also help these animals in protecting their young by keeping them warm. The webbing between their toes helps to create a larger surface area, which enables them to cover their young and provide them with warmth and protection.

This division of labor helps ensure the survival and well-being of the offspring by providing them with an adequate food supply.

      Before the last egg is laid

    D. Before the last egg is laid 
    Explanation
    Incubation begins before the last egg is laid. This is because incubation is the process of keeping the eggs warm in order to facilitate the development of the embryos inside. If incubation started after the last egg is laid, the earlier-laid eggs would be left unattended and their development would be compromised. Therefore, it is necessary for incubation to begin before the last egg is laid to ensure that all eggs receive the necessary warmth and care for successful development.
