Solution

The correct option is B Both A and R are true but R is not the correct explanation of A
Man selects the plant varieties with desired characters and separates them from those which do not have those characters. The selected varieties are then interbred. This process is termed as artificial selection. By artificial selection, plant breeders are able to produce improved varieties of different kinds of plants from their wild ancestors. E.g., Broccoli, kale, cauliflower, etc are derived from wild cabbage by artificial selection.
