Why might knowledge of the gene and protein sequences of a species be useful in classifying that species? I think it is C bt im not sure ;/ a)It would allow more accurate naming of the species by basing names on genes rather than appearance. b)It would keep the species from being interbred with any other species that might appear physically similar to it. c)It would make it possible to compare that species to other species at a level deeper than outward appearance d)It would prove that all the members of a given species were genetically identical to each other.

    If you think about it, it's like a social situation in school, y'know? All the teens derive from the same homo sapien, only the ethnicity, the body type, and the personality are different. You can't judge someone by the outside, but on the inside, just like classifying different types of species.
