Correct option is
D

Members of a species cannot interbreed with members of other species.

  • According to biological species, concept members of a species are morphologically similar and can potentially interbreed with each other but are reproductively isolated with other species.
  • They usually occupy the same habitat as reproductive isolation results in the evolution of species adapting for a particular habitat.
  • Hence, statements given in options A, B and C are correct while the statement given in option D is incorrect.
  • So, the correct option is 'Members of a species cannot interbreed with members of other species.'
