Write the correct sequence of genetic diversity?


Kingdom, Population, Species, Genes, Chromosome, Nucleotides


Species, Genes, Population, Chromosomes, Nucleotides


Population, Species, Chromosomes, Genes, Nucleotides


Kingdom, Species, Chromosomes, Genes, Nucleotides


Genetic diversity is the total number of genetic characteristics in the genetic makeup of a species. The correct sequence is population, species, chromosomes, genes and then nucleotides from a higher to lower level. It becomes more specific from higher to lower level as the number of organisms keeps decreasing. It serves as a way for populations to adapt to changing environments. With more variation, it is more likely that some individuals in a population will possess variations of alleles that are suited for the environment.
So, the correct answer is 'Population, Species, Chromosomes, Genes, Nucleotides'.
