Directions: Read the given passage carefully and choose the best answer to the following question out of the four alternatives.
Butterflies come in all shapes and sizes and there are more than seventeen thousand different kinds. They are one of the most interesting insects on this planet. Butterflies go through four main stages of life. The first stage is the egg stage followed by the larva stage. As a larva, or caterpillar, the future butterfly eats as much as possible. As it grows, it sheds its outer skin, or exoskeleton. This may happen four or five times. After a few weeks, the caterpillar enters the next stage of its life, it forms a cocoon around itself. In this stage, the caterpillar produces the silk thread by which it weaves the cocoon. Then, it will reorganise into a butterfly and the metamorphosis is complete.
It pumps its wings to send blood through them so that it can fly. Most butterflies only live a couple of weeks, just enough time to drink flower nectar and to mate. Some, like the Monarch Butterfly, however, may live many months.
The caterpillar casts off its _______ four to five times.
