# The table below gives the populations ( in thousands ) of ten species ( A - J ) in four areas ( a - d ) consisting of the number of habitats given within brackets against each. Study the table and answer the question which follows :

 Area and number of habitats Species, and their populations ( in thousands ) in the areas A B C D E F G H I J a (11) 2.3 1.2 0.52 6.0 - 3.1 1.1 9.0 - 10.3 b(11) 10.2 - 0.62 - 1.5 3.0 - 8.2 1.1 11.2 c(13) 11.3 0.9 0.48 2.4 1.4 4.2 0.8 8.4 2.2 4.1 b(12) 3.2 10.2 11.1 4.8 0.4 3.3 0.8 7.3 11.3 2.1

Which area out of a tod shows maximum species diversity ?

$\begin {array} {1 1} (1)\;a & \quad (2)\;b \\ (3)\;c & \quad (4)\;d \end {array}$
