Solution

The correct options are
A

Production of drought-resistant varieties.


B

Production of plants with higher disease resistance.


C

Production of effective vaccines


The technological advancement of genetic engineering has made it possible to manipulate the genetic constitution of an organism. With the help of this technology, we can produce better varieties of plants that can withstand harsh climatic conditions like drought, salinity, temperature etc. Production of plants with higher disease resistance and production of effective vaccines are some other achievements of genetic engineering.

Production of alcohol, bread, or cake using microbes like bacteria and fungi belongs to traditional biotechnology and it does not require manipulation of genes.
