All of the following would result in a change in population size except

A. equal birth and death rates.

B. immigration of individuals into the population range

C. emigration of individuals out of the population range.

D. the death rates exceeding the birth rate.

A

Answer: A. equal birth and death rates.

Population size could change either by increasing, due to a number of factors. One of such factors is death and birth rate: an increased death rate and decreased birth rate will tilt the balance. Emigration of individuals out of the population range will reduce the size of the population, and so will immigration if individuals into the population range. Equal birth and death rates, however, will not result in change, keeping the population balanced.
