D

loader

Solution

The correct option is A Biotic potential
Biotic potential is defined as the physiological capacity of organisms to produce their offspring under natural conditions. It is also called reproductive potential. In nature, the biotic potential of organisms is enormous but all the organisms do not survive due to the lack of food and space. There are also a number of diseases and the predatory organisms that feed upon other organisms. The carrying capacity is the maximum number of individuals which the environment can support or sustain. Birth rate is the number of off springs produced per female per unit time. Fertility rate is the number of live births occurring in a year per 1000 women of child-bearing age (usually 15 to 44 years)
So, the correct answer is 'Biotic potential'
