Correct Answer: (4) the process of ecological succession

This is an example of primary succession. Primary succession refers to the colonization of new areas by living organisms.

Incorrect Answers:

Option 1 is incorrect because it is a false statement. If a new island is formed, there must be n increase in the amount of organic material in that area.

Decrease in the levels of abiotic factors will not lead to colonization by many living organisms.
