Hi,

I chose D while the correct answer was A.
Where in the passage does the author suggest that the strawberries can contain both mites without damage?

Because it seemed to me that the strawberries were damaged by the CL mites.

Hi Maxim,

If strawberry crops couldn't sustain both populations of mites, then the experiments conducted would be impossible. In fact, the whole passage wouldn't make much sense. As early as the first paragraph, the author describes how the predator mites keep cyclamen mites "from reaching dangerously high levels" (lines 13-14). As long as there is a balance between the two populations, the strawberry crops seem to be doing just fine.

Hope this helps, and sorry for the belated response.

Thanks,

Hi,

I think what got me to pick D was the first paragraph saying "Typhlo ... usually invade ... during the second year"
Is it the lack of certainty caused by "usually" that makes this answer wrong?

Thank you!
