. Write one difference between asexual and sexual mode of reproduction. Which species is likely
to have better chances of survival-the one reproducing asexually or the one reproducing sexually
Ans. Difference between asexual and sexual mode of reproduction.
The survival of animal reproducing sexually has better chance of survival:
(i) Modes of sexual reproduction allow for greater variations to be generated which are useful for ensuring the survival of the individuals of species during the struggle for existence. Sexually reproductive young ones are
more healthy than those reproduced by asexual methods.
(ii) In asexual reproduction, the off springs are almost identical to their parent because they have the same genes as their parent, so much genetic variation is not possible in asexual reproduction. This is a disadvantage because it inhibits the further evolution of the organism.
