Answers (1)


Option (1)-Speciation happens when two populations of identical species live together without interbreeding is known as sympatric speciation. The development of new species occurs within the geographic range of the parental population.

Option (2)- Allopatric speciation occurs when geographical changes cause biological populations of the same species to become isolated from one another.

Option (3)- Two or more new species can arise from one common ancestor through a process known as parapatric speciation.

Therefore, option 1 is the correct answer.
