Question:

Read the\u00A0supporting details\u00A0then answer the following question.
Which of the following options best\u00A0describes why the American buffalo was headed for extinction?

A The government was trying to solve their issues with the Native Americans
Explaination

The option that best describes why the American buffalo was almost extinct is: The government was trying to solve their issues with the Native Americans. During the 1800\u2019s, the government encouraged the slaughter of the American buffalo because they were hoping that if the buffalo were gone, the Native Americans would go with them. The passage did imply that the Native Americans hunted the buffalo, but the Native Americans did not over-hunt the buffalo; therefore, you can eliminate that option. The other two answer options were not implied in the given passage; therefore, you can also eliminate them as possible answers.
