Totally taking advantage of those who have answered before me, and relying heavily on searches on DuckDuckGo, here are my guesses:

  1. D. No pressure needed to ensure smooth drainage. Just gravity.

  2. Roof flashing at plumbing vent pipe(s) has been incorrectly installed and the sealant around the flashing(s) has deteriorated. This condition may allow water to leak into the home. Also, this plumbing vent pipe(s) is sealed which can cause drainage problems and sewer odors in the home. Further evaluation and repair by a qualified contractor is recommended.

  3. Among living organisms, bacteria lead in population and biomass but Bacteria is a Kingdom, not a species. (Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species). Limited to answers among the kingdom “Animalia”…
    —The dominant animal species on earth by influence is humans (Homo sapiens).
    —The dominant animal species on earth by mass is cattle (Bos taurus). There are only about 1.5 billion cattle on earth, much less population than the 8 billion humans but they weigh on average 500 kg (1115 lb) or about the same as Yo Momma. So there are about 750 million tons of cattle, making them the dominant species by mass.
    — The dominant animal species by population is Antarctic Krill (Euphausia suberba) at roughly 500 trillion but a biomass of only around 150 million tons (they are tiny)
    — The dominant in smell is of course, Yo Momma.

  4. The drugstore beetle , Stegobium paniceum
    and the cigarette beetle , Lasioderma serricorne

  5. Control moisture

4) There are over 1000 described species of anobiid beetles. Many are wood borers.
Besides causing direct damage by their feeding, they also elicit disgust, annoyance, and anger in those who discover them.
Name these two types!
The cigarette beetle, Lasioderma serricorne (F.), also known as the tobacco beetle, and the drugstore beetle, Stegobium paniceum (L.) are pests of stored products

Besides causing direct damage by their feeding, they also elicit disgust, annoyance, and anger in those who find them infesting these products. The cigarette beetle is a commonly encountered stored-product pest in the home and has long been associated with humans – some were found in dried resin from the tomb of Egyptian King Tutankhamun.
