The correct options are
A Social Behaviour
B Sexual Behaviour
C Parental Care
D Sexual Imprinting
Behaviour can be defined as an organism’s adaptive response to stimuli in its environment.
Social Behaviour: Behaviour is both an instinctive process (influenced by genes) and a learned experience (gained by experience).Social attachment among animals is called imprinting.
Sexual Behaviour: The opposite sexes coming close to each other is both by an instinctive process and sexual attraction, exhibited by one or both the partners.
Parental Care: Any investment made or any effort taken by the parent to take care of the young ones in order to increase the chance of survival of the offspring and
hence increase the reproductive rate of success is called parental care.
Sexual Imprinting: It is a process in which an individual animal learns to direct its sexual behaviour as a member of its own species.
