Natural Selection

Post by 1357 » Mon Nov 25, 2013 6:47 pm

Think about the factors that will influence the evolution of humans in the future. Name one factor that would exert influence through natural selection and one factor that would exert influence through artificial selection.

A. natural selection: genetic engineering; artificial selection: demands placed on the brain.
B. natural selection: individual mating choice; artificial selection: diseases.
C. natural selection: diseases; artificial selection: genetic engineering.
D. natural selection: demands placed on the brain; artificial selection: diseases

I think this is C.

Sounds good. The question kind of stretches the term of artificial selection, but it's still the best choice.
