Modern entomologists are primarily engaged in the research of insects that provide a direct benefit, or cause direct harm, to human interests. The benefits of researching and protecting insect life may be immediate, such as using an insect presence to control pests or diseases, or long-term, such as protecting native species from unnecessary human intercession in order to maintain a balanced ecosystem. Research on harmful insect life endeavors to produce methods of insect control that are reliable and effective, while minimizing the effect of the control on other species. Although most insect orders include both pests and beneficial species, a few orders, such as lice and fleas, provide no benefits to humans and are said to be entirely parasitic.
Consider each of the following choices separately and select \(all\) that apply.

Which of the following statements is supported by the passage?

A The majority of insect orders are capable of both advancing and inhibiting human interests.
B An effective insect control method will never cause side effects to insect or animal life outside the targeted order.
C Entomological research has facilitated the development of insect species that are considered parasitic.

E mediation.

Q1.

A can be true from " Although most insect orders include both pests and beneficial species"
B cannot be true since from "Research on harmful insect life endeavors to produce methods of insect control that are reliable and effective, while minimizing the effect of the control on other species" it only says it minimizes NOT eradicates the impact for other species
C. Totally out of context

Hence only A.

Q2.
Intercession here means intrusion from Humans , Option D
