Read the following passage and answer the following by choosing the correct option:

The Galapagos Islands in the Pacific Ocean are a rocky, lonely spot, but they are also one of the most unusual places in the world. The reason is that they are the home of some of the last giant tortoises left on earth. Weighing hundreds of pounds, these tortoises wander slowly around the rocks and sand of the islands. Each of these islands has its own particular kind of tortoise. There are seven different types of tortoises on the eight islands. Hundreds of years ago, thousands of tortoises wandered around these islands. All that changed when people started landing there. When people first arrived, their ships had no refrigerators. This meant that fresh food was always a problem for the sailors on board. The giant tortoises provided solution to this problem. Ships would anchor off the islands, and crew would seize as many tortoises as they could. Once the animals were aboard the ship, the crew would roll the tortoises into their backs and use them for soups and stews. Almost 100,000 tortoises were carried off in this way. The tortoises faced other problems too. Soon after the first ships, settlers started arriving bringing pigs, goats, donkeys, cats and dogs. All these animals ruined life for the tortoises. Donkeys ate all the plants the tortoises usually fed on.
