Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Some of the islands are home to animals rather than people

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Some islands are inhabited by animals rather than humans. This means that these islands serve as natural habitats for various species of animals, providing them with a safe and undisturbed environment to live in. These islands may lack human settlements or infrastructure, allowing the animals to thrive without interference. It is not uncommon for certain islands to be designated as wildlife sanctuaries or protected areas to preserve the biodiversity and natural ecosystems found there. Therefore, the statement "Some of the islands are home to animals rather than people" is true.
