a. Sexual reproduction does not do this, so it can't be a

b. Reflecting on the answer to a, what do you think about b?

c. Thinking of the differences between sexual and asexual reproduction, do you think that this is a large factor?

d. Look back at a to get a general idea about this one.

I've given you some hints, because just telling the answer outright generally isn't all that helpful for learning. If, after reading this, you still don't understand the question, just post again and I (or someone else, if I'm beaten to it) can give a more thorough explanation.
