Which of the following ideas was not supported by Lamarck?

  1. Natural selection
  2. Use and disuse of organs
  3. Inheritance of acquired characters
  4. Species change over time


The concept that states that inheritable characters that help an organism to survive and produce offspring become more common among a population over time.

The correct answer is: Natural selection

    • Natural selection was proposed by Charles Darwin and not Lamarck
    • Natural selection as stated by Darwin is "heritable traits that help organisms survive and reproduce become more common in a population over time"
    • According to the concept, the species that adapts itself to the changing environment is considered fit to survive
    • This helps in creating variations among living populations
