    Answer:

    B. The native species population would decrease because the nonnative species would be competing for food sources.

    Explanation:

    This question is describing the effect of invasive species. Invasive species are foreign species i.e. not native to a habitat or area, introduced into the area with the ability to outcompete and negatively affect the native species of that area.

    Invasive species compete with the native species for food, space, mate etc., and tend to outgrow them. Hence, if a nonnative predator (invasive) species were introduced to an area, the native predator species in that area would decrease because the nonnative species would be competing for food sources.
