The organisms formed by asexual reproduction are considered as clones. Why? State the advantage of sexual reproduction over asexual reproduction.

Plz help with this Class XIII question.


The organisms formed by asexual are clones because the parent transfers the exact copy of its genes to its child and there are no second parent's genes to mix into the child so therefore the child becomes a exact blue print of its parent.
Advantage of sexual reproduction is that the mixing of the genes from two different parent bodies brings forth a hybrid child rather than a blue print of the one parent as in asexual reproduction.
