Solution

## The correct option is D Both A and CIn exponential growth, a population's per capita (per individual) growth rate stays the same regardless of population size, making the population grow faster and faster as it gets larger.When resources are unlimited, populations exhibit exponential growth, resulting in a J-shaped curve.Exponential growth is represented by the equation dN/dt = rN. In this equation, dN/dt is the growth rate of the population in a given instant, N is population size, t is time, and r is the per capita rate of increase –that is, how quickly the population grows per individual already in the population. The integral equation for exponential growth is Nt=N0ert.Where Nt=Population density after time t,No =Population density at time zero,r=intrinsic rate of natural increase,e=the base of natural logarithms (2.71828),So, the correct answer is 'Both A and C'.
