What are the advantages of sexual reproduction ?
A. 1) Sexual reproduction promotes diversity of characters in the offsprings by providing genetic variation.
2) Sexual reproduction plays an important role in the origin of new species having different characteristics.
3) This genetic variation leads to the continuous evolution of various species to form better and still better organisms. All this is not possible in case of asexual reproduction.
4) Diversity of characters in the new generation give a better chance to adjust or adopt to changing environmental conditions to tolerate diseases, to spread to new areas and increase their population.
