In contrast to mammals and birds, amphibians are unable to produce thermal energy through their metabolic activity, which would allow them to regulate their body temperature independent of the surrounding or ambient temperature. However, the idea that amphibians have no control whatsoever over their body temperature has been proven false because their body temperature does not always correspond to the surrounding temperature While amphibians are poor thermoregulators, they do exercise control over their body temperature to a limited degree.
1. According to paragraph 1, what indicates that amphibians have some control over their body temperature? 【事实信息题】
A. Amphibians can regulate their metabolic rates to generate energy.
B. Amphibians use the same means of thermoregulation as mammals and birds do.
C. The body temperature of amphibians sometimes differs from the temperature of their surroundings.
D. The body temperature of amphibians is independent of their metabolic activity.
解析：根据原文which would allow them to regulate their body temperature independent of the surrounding or ambient temperature.可知两栖动物可以调节自身温度，使其与周围环境温度不同。其中independent of 对应C选项中的differs from, 所以C选项正确。
