Question 8

Which of the following statements is consistent with Darwin's idea of natural selection?

Selected

Selected

Answer:

 

Individuals better adapted to the environment tend to leave more offspring.

Answers:

Larger individuals tend to have more offspring.

Which of the following statements is consistent with Darwin's idea of natural selection? Selected Answer: Individuals

Individuals better adapted to the environment tend to leave more offspring.

Individuals with variation tend to survive longer.

Survival of individuals is more important in natural selection than in reproduction.

Organisms placed into a cold environment will have an increased rate of mutation

Smaller organisms are less fit for their environment
