    Correct Answer
    D. 1986
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 1986. In 1986, the Asian Elephant was officially labeled as an endangered species. This means that the population of Asian Elephants had declined significantly, and they were at a high risk of extinction. This classification was likely based on factors such as habitat loss, poaching, and human-wildlife conflict, which have all contributed to the decline in their numbers. Efforts have since been made to conserve and protect the Asian Elephant population to ensure their survival for future generations.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The Asian elephant is primarily threatened by loss of habitat, degradation, and fragmentation. Loss of habitat refers to the destruction or conversion of their natural habitats, such as forests, due to human activities like deforestation and urbanization. Degradation refers to the deterioration of the quality of their remaining habitats, often caused by pollution, invasive species, or unsustainable land use practices. Fragmentation refers to the division of their habitats into smaller and isolated patches, making it difficult for elephants to move and find resources. All of these factors combined pose a significant threat to the survival of Asian elephants.

    Explanation
    Asian elephants die at a much younger age due to a high death rate. This means that they have a shorter lifespan compared to other elephants. The high death rate could be caused by various factors such as habitat loss, human-wildlife conflict, disease, and lack of conservation efforts. These factors contribute to a higher mortality rate among Asian elephants, leading to a shorter average lifespan.
