Temperate deciduous forest 

Correct Answer
B

Tropical rain forest 

Your Answer
C

Tropical deciduous forest 

Your Answer
D

Temperate evergreen forest 


Solution

The correct option is C

Tropical rain forest 


Net primary productivity is the amount of organic matter stored by producers per unit area in unit time. Since in the tropics where rainforests are found, water, light, and high temperatures are readily available, and there is a dense concentration of green plants at all levels from the lower stories to the canopy, it is no wonder that these forests have the highest levels of productivity.
