QUESTION TYPE: Most Strongly Supported
- White footed mice thrive in fragmented forests.
- Mice transfer Lyme disease to humans, via deer ticks.
ANALYSIS: This information suggests that forest fragmentation helps spread lyme disease to humans.
- Not necessarily. The mice might be common in regular forests, and even more common in fragmented forests.
- We only know this is true for white-footed mice. It might not be true for other animals.
- We don’t know. At least some species do better in fragmented forests, such as white-footed mice.
- CORRECT. Specifically, efforts to stop forest fragmentation might reduce the spread Lyme disease.
- We know white-footed mice reach their highest concentration in fragmented forests. But deer ticks might thrive even better in another environment, even if they still exist in fragmented forests.
