Answer: A. The sum of all genetic traits in a population’s individuals at a given time

A gene pool is a collection of a variety of genes in an interbreeding population. A gene pool means the sum of a population’s allele (genetic material) at a given time. For example, a population of trees in a forest is a gene pool. A population of frogs in a pond is another example of a gene pool.
