FOR QUESTIONS 34 TO 37, READ THE ARTICLE AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS THAT FOLLOW.

Who would win in a fight, a lion or a tiger? if size has anything to do with the matter, the would win. That’s because tigers are the largest
of all cat species. Tigers are the third largest land carnivore. The only larger land carnivores are polar bears and brown bears. Tigers are not only large, they are also fast. This makes for an extremely dangerous pounce. You might not think that such large, fast, and ferocious creatures need help survive, but they do. The tiger is an endangered species.
Despite the tiger’s strengths, the future of the species is uncertain. Tigers face a very high risk of extinction. It IS estimated that at the start of the 20th century, there were over 1,00,000 tigers living in the wild. By the turn of the century, the number of tigers outside of captivity dwindled to just over 3,000. Interestingly, the most serious threats that tigers face come from a much smaller species, one an average weight of around 140 lbs. That species Homo sapiens, better known as ‘humans’. Humans threaten tigers in primarily two ways: Hunting destroying habitat.
Tigers are hunted for many reasons. People have long valued the famous striped skin. Though the fur would be incentive enough for most other parts of the tiger can also fetch a pretty Some people in China and other Asian believe that various tiger parts have properties. Traditional Chinese medicine the use of tiger bones, amongst other prescriptions.
Tigers have also been hunted as game. In other words, people hunted tigers solely for the thrill and achievement of killing them.
Humans have done considerable damage to the world’s tiger population through hunting, but perhaps more damage has been caused through the destruction of habitat. Tigers once ranged widely across Asia, all the way from Turkey to the eastern coast of Russia. But over the past 100 years, tigers have lost 93% of their historic range. Instead of spanning all the way across Asia, the tiger population is now isolated in small pockets in south and southeastern Asia. This is because humans have drastically changed the environments. Humans have built towns and cities. Road and transit systems were created to connect these towns and cities. To feed the people living in these areas, forests and fields have been cleared to create farmland. All these activities have destroyed habitats that at one time supported tigers.
