That's perfectly fine. Genetics is a topic that confuses a lot of people, hee hee. Fortunately I can help you with this! :D To start, you need to have an understanding of what each of those terms mean. Are you familiar with any of them, or would you like me to explain them with a short definition?

I'm Familiar with the term.

Okay, good. :) So let's start eliminating some of the nonsense answers. Option A is a nonsense answer, because gene flow has to do with entire populations, not just parents passing genes down to their kids. :) Do you see any others that can be eliminated?

I agree & i would say we can eliminate D too , right?

Excellent! :D Natural selection is really only talking about traits that help organisms survive (survival of the fittest). Similarly, we can get rid of one more... which one do you think that is? (Hint: it has something to do with mutations)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Or, rather, it can CAUSE mutations. :)

crossing over ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well; that would be a good guess, because it has a hand in causing mutations sometimes. But actually, genetic drift causes mutations, or variance, in the genes of populations, which basically feeds into natural selection. Perhaps I should have made myself more clear - sorry about that!
anonymous
  • anonymous
so crossing over is the correct answer of this question ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes, it is! Do you understand this better, now? :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
