i have no clue how to answer this question.

Current estimates of the Scottish wildcat population vary. Recent reports by the Scottish Wildcat Association indicate that fewer than 100 individuals, possibly as few as 35, remain in the wild. These individuals occur only in the most remote, uninhabited areas of the Scottish Highlands.
Biodiversity can be considered at several levels. A scientist concluded that the biodiversity of the Scottish Highlands would continue to reduce because of the small population of Scottish wildcats.
Evaluate the scientist’s conclusion with reference to genetic biodiversity and species biodiversity.

yes because
1. small population causes interbreeding and lead to the genetic diversity being reduced
2. Reducing the size of a population of a species to lower than the average will reduce the index of diversity

Not too sure on this but they are my initial thoughts
