Which of the following statements is the leading hypothesis to explain why many organisms reproduce sexually?

0 votes

 

The offspring that result from sexual reproduction all have the same genetic composition as their parents and thus are most able to survive.

The offspring that result from sexual reproduction are genetically variable, and some of them can fight off diseases more easily than genetically identical offspring.

Sexual reproduction produces many offspring, much more quickly than asexual reproduction.

Sexual reproduction does not require as much energy as asexual reproduction because two partners are involved.
