the conclusion in this argument wasn't as evident to me. my summary was "biodiversity is indispensable, but we don't need it to survive because there are niches". does that somehow translate into the correct answer choice? I became confused and ended up choosing an answer choice about niches.

The conclusion here is that biodiversity doesn't require every single species to survive.
