    Q.1 SOLUTION:

    Case Identification Explanation Scenarios 1 Neurobiology Alina belongs to Neurobiology and developmental neurobiology (sub specialization of neurosciences); because Alina conducted some experiment to know about the hypothalamus and its activities. After conducting some experiments, she comes to know that hypothalamus plays a significant role in eating behavior of rats. 2 Neuroendocrinology Afifa wants to know influences of hormonal secretions on behavior.

Natural selection pressures can work only in the presence of genetic variability Adaptations made in one generation; if beneficial would be carried on to the next generation there is constant process of adaptation. If species do not adapt they do not survive (dogs which do not learn to watch for cars on the road, die which means the end of their genes). Primates developed extensions to help in survival/hunting (young chimps use hollow sticks for ants), as they could not compete with the stronger hunters and predators.
