    B. There are
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "there are" because it is the appropriate verb form to match with the subject "lots of animals." "There is" would be used if the subject were singular, but since it is plural, "there are" is the correct choice. "There aren't" would be used if the sentence were negative, but in this case, it is positive.

    Correct Answer

    The correct answer is "are there" because the question is asking about the number of people in the family, which is plural. Therefore, the verb "are" should be used to agree with the plural subject "people."
