    A) Both king snakes and coral snakes rely on the same food sources, causing them to share similar alleles for coloration. B) Some king snakes chose to adapt to closely resemble the coloration of venomous coral snakes in order to scare off potential predators, thus increasing in number. C) The king snakes with markings like venomous coral snakes were avoided by predators, so they were more likely to survive and pass on this trait to offspring. D) Coral snakes chose to adapt to resemble the scarlet king snake in order to hide from prey and scare off potential predators.

    C would have to be my answer if it came down to it "Red touch black, safe for now Jack. Red touches yellow, kills a fellow."

    Hmm... i would go with \(C\) as snakes with these markings avoided predators then they're the ones that survived to pass the gene on - the ones that didn't avoid the predators or couldn't get to pass on their markings.
