Question #1

Soft-bodied animals like caterpillars often fall a prey to 
voracious hunters like birds or reptiles.
Despite having no means to 'actively' defend themselves,
with weapons like claws or jaws, they have nevertheless,
evolved other equally effective deterrents.
A particular species of the caterpillar lives at an altitude
of 2.500 meters in the Himalayas. It uses prominent color
to inform would be predators of its inedibility.
In the event that an inexperienced or adventurous bird did
eat the caterpillar, it would probably vomit it soon after,
and subsequently, desist from attacking similar species
in future. Though this would do the unfortunate victim no
good, the species benefits. A rare example of the martyr
among animals.

From the passage above answer the below questions:

The expression "others equally effective deterrents" mean

 
A

B
