SOMEONE ASKED 👇
HELP PLEASE Which factors are common to both gradualism and punctuated equilibrium?
HERE THE ANSWERS 👇
Well gradualism states that species change gradually over time, while the punctuated equilibrium hypothesis states that there are long periods of no change with sudden spurts of rapid change. So, C is incorrect because it doesn’t support P.E. It’s not A because natural selection is not a part of P.E. since the idea of PE is random massive events that wipe out species (like the dinosaurs) and genetic drift is a random changing in allele frequency, which gradualism doesn’t support necessarily. So I guess the answer would be B. This is a very poorly worded question though and I’m only about 80% sure. Definitely not C, I think it’s ASource(s): I took AP Biology
