    In paragraph 9, the passage mentions that the people who built the fences faced hardships such as weather conditions and loneliness.

Therefore, the correct answer is the people who built the fences.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of these contributed most to the growing rabbit population?

    • A.

      Lack of natural predators

    • B.

      The construction of fences

    • C.

      Laws against hunting rabbits

    • D.

      Farmers raising rabbits

    Correct Answer
    A. Lack of natural predators
    Explanation
    The lack of natural predators is the most significant factor contributing to the growing rabbit population. Without predators, the rabbit population can reproduce and increase rapidly, leading to a larger population size. The absence of natural predators allows rabbits to thrive and multiply without any significant threat to their survival. This lack of predation disrupts the natural balance in the ecosystem and can result in overpopulation.

    Correct Answer
    B. Water wells were often located hundreds of miles apart
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that water wells were often located hundreds of miles apart. This made it difficult to find water for camels because they needed regular access to water in order to survive. With water wells so far apart, it would require a significant amount of time and effort to travel between them and ensure that the camels had enough water.
