    The correct option is C) Animal and insect population will decrease in the location.


    A forest is a habitat to various plant and animal species. The cutting down of a forest causes devastating effects on the plants and animals as their natural habitats get destroyed. Some of them migrate to other places while others cannot survive and become endangered or extinct. Hence, the correct option is C. Clearing a forest will decrease the animal and insect population.
