  • Q1
    Within a decade of the introduction of a new insecticide, nearly all of the descendants of the target pest were immune to the usual-sized dose. The most likely explanation for this is that:
    The insectivide cuased mutations in the insects that allowed some of them to become resistant
    Some of the insects had a natural resistance that they passed on
    Eating the insecticide caused the insects to become more resistant to it
    It kills organisms that cause disease in the insects, allowing them to live longer
