many birds eat butterflies for food. however, the monarch butterfly has a bad taste and is therefore avoided by birds. the viceroy butterfly looks very much like monarch butterfly, but it does not taste bad to the birds. tiger swallowtail butterflies do not look like either the monarch or the viceroy butterfly, and they taste good to birds.

if 100 of each of the 3 types of butterflies were released in an area populated by birds, which of the following results would be expected about the number of butterflies eaten by birds?

A. Viceroy butterflies would be eaten more than tiger swallowtail butterflies but less than monarch butterflies
B. monarch butterflies would be eaten more than viceroy butterflies or tiger butterflies
C. monarch butterflies would be eaten more than tiger swallowtail butterflies but less than viceroy butterflies
tiger swallowtail butterflies would be eaten more than viceroy butterflies or monarch butterflies
E. the number of monarch and tiger swallowtail butterflies eaten would be about equal, and would be more than the number of viceroy butterflies
