Read the following passage and then choose the best question to ask before reading the rest of the passage. Rain forests are complex environments with numerous natural resources. Food, shelter, medicine, and clothing are only a few. There is a delicate sense of balance; each plant and animal species depends on another. With the destruction of the rain forest, species become extinct everyday. With so many species yet to be discovered, the full ramifications are still unknown.

    Why are people destroying the rain forests? How do plants and animals depend on each other in the rain forests? What are some of the ramifications resulting from the destruction of the rain forests? What kinds of creatures live in rain forests?

    In the past 50 years much of the rainforest in Africa and Asia has been destroyed. Timber companies cut down huge trees such as mahogany and teak and sell them to other countries to make furniture. The forests are cut down to make way for vast plantations where products such as bananas, palm oil, pineapple, sugar cane, tea and coffee are grown. minerals and metals such as diamonds, oil, aluminium, copper and gold, which are often found in the ground below rainforests. The rainforests therefore have to be removed in order to extract them. Rainforests are seriously affected by oil companies searching for new oil deposits. large companies invest money in developing countries to build dams for the generation of electricity. This can involve flooding vast areas of rainforest.
