The age structure of a population influences population growth because

  1. a) Different age groups have different reproductive capabilities
  2. b) Younger females have more offspring than older ones
  3. c) Shorter generation time results in slower population growth
  4. d) More the number of immature individuals, slower is the population growth

Answer: a)Different age groups have different reproductive capabilities

Explanation: The reproductive individuals are the ones that help in population growth. The pre-reproductive individuals are yet to contribute, and the post-reproductive individuals have stopped reproducing. Thus, different age groups have different reproductive capabilities.
