Which of the following is most likely to decrease genetic variation?

1. stabilizing selection

2. diversifying selection

3. mutation

4. directional selection

A

Genetic variation is the term used to describe differences in the DNA sequences of people. These differences can either be enhanced or reduced, based on specific factors. One factor that is most likely to decrease genetic variation is stabilizing selection.

Stabilizing selection will make sure that only the desired traits are retained. This is achieved when the organisms are exposed to conditioning factors that ensure the dominance of said traits.
