Harlequin frogs are an endangered species that live in a small area of Costa Rica. The reasons for the species' decline is unknown. Scientists want to create a computer simulation of the frogs' environment and determine how best to protect the frogs.

Which of the following is NOT true about the scientists' simulation?

A

The scientists must be careful of how many variables they include in their simulation so that they do not cause further​ harm the frogs.

B

The scientists can try a variety of different simulations and analyze the data to see which one is the most effective.

C

Based on the results of the simulation, scientists can develop a plan to save the Harlequin frogs before they become extinct.

D

The scientists can incorporate other factors, such as square footage of protected land, in the simulation.
