The information given, if accurate, most strongly supports which of the following hypotheses? A. Fires in the habitat of E. Penduliflora do not entirely destroy the plant's seeds even in the places where the fires burn most intensely. B. The nitrogen dioxide in automobile exhaust cannot harm plants of E. Penduliflora after germination. C. If human intervention decreases the number of fires in the habitat of E. Penduliflora, automobile exhaust can replicate the conditions the plant requires in order to thrive. D. Within the habitat of E. Penduliflora, natural fires are significantly more frequent in areas with heavy automobile traffic than they are in other areas. E. Unless E. Penduliflora seeds that have germinated can survive in the shade, automobile exhaust threatens the long-term survival of the plant in areas with heavy automobile traffic.
