Interspecific hybridization involves mating male and female animals of two different species. In certain instances, the offspring resulting from this crossbreeding can possess desirable characteristics inherited from both parent species, which can hold significant economic value. For example, the mule is a notable outcome of interspecific hybridization, produced by mating a male donkey with a female horse (mare). Hence, option 3 is the correct answer.
