2 Answer

  • The Correct Answer I Believe is B 

    The four principles of natural selection are variability among members of a species, heritability of the variable features, differences in population members' ability to reproduce and survival of the fittest in terms of variability, heritability and reproduction. Natural selection is one of evolution's four mechanisms.
  • The species demonstrate descent with modification from their ancestors is not a principle of natural selection.

    The correct option is b.

    What is natural selection?

    Natural selection is the adaptation and modification of populations of living organisms.

    Individuals in a population are inherently varied, which means that they differ in certain respects.

    Favorable qualities are passed down through the generations as a result of natural selection.

    Thus, the correct option is b, species demonstrate descent with modification from their ancestors.
