  • Q1

    Traits from two parents are combined.
    More organisms reproduce this way.

  • Q7
    Some plants can reproduce both asexually and sexually. How does a population benefit from reproducing SEXUALLY instead of asexually?
    It can increase the diversity of inherited traits.
    It can pass favorable traits to all offspring.
    It can eliminate unfavorable traits from the gene pool.
    It can reproduce more rapidly.
