Q. 4. What are the advantages of sexual reproduction over asexual reproduction?
Advantages of sexual reproduction:
1. In sexual reproduction, more variations are produced. Thus, it ensures the survival of species in a population.
2. The newly formed individual has characteristics of both the parents.
3. Variations are more viable in sexual mode than in asexual one. This is because, in asexual reproduction, DNA has to function inside the inherited cellular apparatus.
