Question

Which of the following is not true regarding asexual reproduction?


  1. The offsprings produced are not identical to the parents

  2. There is none or very less genetic diversity among the species

  3. A single parent is involved in this process

  4. Genetic diversity can be introduced by gene mutation


Solution

The correct option is A

The offsprings produced are not identical to the parents


In asexual reproduction only one parent is involved; as a result the offspring formed are identical to the parent. Due to this there is very less or no genetic diversity among the organisms reproducing in this manner. Since, genetic diversity is the key to evolution and betterment of  species, in asexually reproducing organisms, genetic diversity can be introduced by gene mutation.
