Hello, everyone. I hope all is well. And today I will be helping you with the 14th problem of the chapter 18 problem set. And this question is asking which statement best describes the relationship between genetic variation and speciation. So, um, we're just gonna go through this and we're gonna compare him, and we're going to see which one is the best answer. So we have a without genetic variation. Speciation would occur more slowly. Okay, well, let's just think about it this way. So without genetic variation, so genetic variation is basically my house. So if you have my oh, sis, right, And you would get, um no. Well, genetic variation essentially is like this. So you're gonna have these and then you're gonna go through my house is too, and you're gonna end up with a wheels like that. You're gonna have awesome sperm or egg that look like this, But let's do a sexual reproduction. So it's binary fission, and they're gonna be the same exact stuff. So say this is the defining factor defining factor there at the same exact thing. So without genetic variation, nothing would change. So that's false, because it would happen at all so and then visas Without genetic variation, speciation would not be possible, which is true that it is it. Then let's just go through the rest of genetic variation influences Sim Patrick speciation. But not Allah. Patrick speciation. So, um well, that is true. But I mean, it is what it is, and then you have. But that's not what they're specifically looking for their specifically looking for. Ah, the relationship between genetic variation and speciation in general. Not very not specifics. And even in the l A. Patrick speciation, even though it is geographically defining, um, the ones who do go to the different geographic area need those need those different Aly lt's in order to have survival of fittest and to adapt correctly me of d. There is no relationship with genetic variation and any form of speciation, which is false. So I hope you found this helpful. And I hope you have a great day. Thank you.
