5. How does the progeny formed from asexual reproduction differ from those formed by sexual reproduction?
The progeny formed from asexual reproduction differs from that formed from sexual reproduction in the following ways:
|Progeny formed from asexual reproduction||Progeny formed from sexual reproduction|
|1||These are formed from single parent||Their formation requires the involvement of two parents i.e. a male and female|
|2||The process of formation does not involve meiosis and crossing over||Formation of gametes involves meiosis and crossing over|
|3||These progenies are copies of their parents and of each other||These progenies are different from their parents and from each other|
|4||These progenies do not show genetic variations||These progenies show genetic variation due to crossing over and recombination|
