Solution

The correct option is A Over-exploitation
The Evil Quartet in Ecology causing loss of biodiversity includes habitat loss and fragmentation, over-exploitation, alien species invasion and co-extinction. When species are harvested untenably or when they are over-exploited for human consumption, they cannot be replenished naturally and are lost to extinction. Utilitarianism is a philosophy that values actions that maximise utility.
