    MMM.. that's what I was thinking but it seem like that would make the question too easy

    I'm looking at the first picture that you posted. There are different types of organisms here. Plants, Animals, and Fungi. Let me rephrase the question: Are animals more closely related to Plants? Or Fungi?

    Fungi

    Right. You know why? I'll give you one reason: Fungi and Animals are both Heterotrophs. That means that they can't make their own food, like plants do. They need to get their food from outside sources.

    We humans are Animals, for example. We can't make our own food. We need to eat other plants and animals.

    Okay. So now I'm looking at your second picture. There are two kinds of reproduction: 1. Sexual 2. Asexual Do you know the difference?

    yes asexual is by itself right?

    Yes. When something reproduces Asexually, by itself, its child looks JUST LIKE the parent. It's IDENTICAL to the parent. Does that make sense ?

    Now, Sexual reproduction is different. For example, our parents reproduced us, Sexually. We don't look EXACTLY like our parents, do we?

    When organisms reproduce ASEXUALLY, the child is IDENTICAL to the parent. When organisms reproduce SEXUALLY, the offspring are a little DIFFERENT from the parent.

    Now let me tell you a very simple, very important fact: "Genetic diversity" means "many different genes."

    Okay. So let's take a look at your 2nd picture. The fill in the blank. "Most grass plants in the school yard have VERY LITTLE genetic diversity."

    VERY LITTLE genetic diversity. Again, "genetic diversity" means "many different genes." What does "very little genetic diversity" mean?

    not many genes

    Right. Most of the grass plants looked alike. It means that they were pretty much IDENTICAL to their parents. So, which kind of reproduction did the grass plants use? Sexual? Or Asexual?

    Here's another very important fact that might help you in the future: SEXUAL reproduction creates GENETIC DIVERSITY. ASEXUAL reproduction DOES NOT create genetic diversity.
