Read the following passage and choose the correct option out of the four options given at the end of the each question (from question No. 1 to 6) .

Man is no doubt a great architect. But many members of the animal kingdom are no less. Their innovative designs and building techniques can inspire and put to shame many an expert. The ingenious use of available material amazes everyone. Meet the enterprising architects. Beavers are well–known for the dams and lodges they build. They have short and strong front teeth. With this, they gnaw through the trunk of trees, branches and cut pieces of necessary length. They choose a narrow part of the stream and drag all the wood to it. A four–to–five feet high dam is built with logs and interwoven branches, which are held firmly with mud and stones carried in their paws. Moles, gerbils, lemmings, besides rabbits, build their homes underground. Just one mole can dig a tunnel over 225 feet long in a night. Their homes have a network of passages and tunnels, which they keep extending. They throw out the earth, creating molehills and several exits. Gerbils found in Africa and Asia, also make burrows with several tunnels, which they constantly keep cleaning, renovating and extending. When there is a scarcity of food or flooding, they move to other burrows. Lemmings build a vast system of halls and tunnels, with several nests, storage facilities and even toilets. The mole rat has huge protruding incisors, which work as picks. These animals live on worms found underground. Moles bite the nerve center of earthworms, then immobilize and store them for later use. Their short hairs can move in all directions, thereby allowing the animal to burrow without dirt getting lodged in its fur.
