Solution

(a) (i) and (ii)

Offsprings which are formed by the asexual method of reproduction has greater similarity among themselves because it involves the gene pool of only one parent. Since there is no import of genes from another partner, this results in the offspring having the purity of only one strain of genes. Naturally, the similarity between offsprings is so visible as variation would have been negated.
