2 Answer

  • The best answer is b. as a white paste
  • Answer: Option (b) is correct.

    Explanation:

    During extreme dry periods, there will be either very less availability of water or no water at all.

    Hence, the tortoises avoid excretion as a watery waste at any time because they are not getting enough water from their surroundings.

    Thus, at this period of time the waste eliminates as a white paste.

    Therefore, during extreme dry periods tortoises will eliminate waste as a white paste.
