What will happen if deer is missing in the food chain given below?
Grass → Deer → Tiger
(a) The population of tigers increases
(b) the population of grass decreases
(c) Tigers will start eating grass
(d) The population of tigers decreases and the population of grass increases.

Solution

The population of tigers decreases and the density of grass increases.
If deer are removed from the given food chain, the population of tigers will decrease as they will not have deer for their food and will starve to death. The density of grass will increase as there is no organism to consume it as food.
