Consider the following statements
concerning food chains
i) Removal of 80% tigers from an area
   resulted in greatly increased growth of
   vegetation.

    resulted in an increased population of
    deers.
iii) The length of food chains is generally
     limited to 3 – 4 trophic levels due to energy loss.
iv) The length of food chains may vary from
