(a) Sexual reproduction brings about variation in the offspring.

(b) Since gamete formation is preceded by meiosis, genetic recombination occurring during crossing over (meiosis-I), leads to a great deal of variation in the DNA of gametes.

(c) The organism has better chances survival in a changing environment.
