Question:

What are the advantages of sexual reproduction over asexual reproduction?

Answer:

Advantages of sexual reproduction :

  • In sexual reproduction, more variations are produced. Thus, it ensures the survival of species in a population.
  • The newly formed individual has the characteristics of both parents. Variations are more viable in the sexual mode than in the asexual one. This is because, in asexual reproduction, DNA has to function inside the inherited cellular apparatus.
