Explanation

You simply need a word here that means “helps.” Don’t fall for ensures, which is too extreme. Having a head that can measure spaces is cool, but hardly guarantees the success of a species.

Enhances.

As an evolutionary adaptation, cats have developed a mechanism whereby their heads are measuring devices, as their bodies can fit through any space that their heads can, and this physiology is a safeguard that _________ their success as a species.

(A) reproduces = produces again
(B) ensures = guarantees
(C) enhances = increases
(D) mitigates = makes less severe or intense
(E) inundates = overwhelms

The best distractor "ensures" would be too sure to be correct in the context of the sentence.
