Solution

The correct option is C Both 1 and 2
Peppered moth- Black colour mutation was favourable since the Industrial Revolution as it gave them an advantage due to dark coloured barks of trees. As in Natural Selection, the genes responsible for the survival of an organism are passed on to successive generations. This trait ensured the survival and reproduction of black peppered moth over time.
