Detail About MCQs

Eretmoptera murphyi is a flightless midge. It is currently changing Antarctica’s Signy Island soil and ecosystem by feasting on dead organic matter.
It has led to faster plant decomposition, thus increasing the soil nitrate levels by three-five times compared to places on the island where the midge is absent.
