    Choice A

    Explanation:

    The ability to combine sentences efficiently is improved by practicing. One of the efficient ways to do this is to use part of the sentence that has already been cited to exclude repetition of the sentence. In this case, we see that "they were introduced" appears twice, and we can shorten this phrase to Between 1872 and 1900, mongooses were introduced into most Caribbean islands in order to protect sugar cane fields from pit vipers.

    So the correct answer is letter A
