Solution - Why is the Offspring Formed by Asexual Reproduction Referred to as Clone? - CBSE (Science) Class 12 - Biology

Question

Why is the offspring formed by asexual reproduction referred to as clone?

Solution

A clone is a group of morphologically and genetically identical individuals.

In the process of asexual reproduction, only one parent is involved and there is no fusion of the male and the female gamete. As a result, the offsprings so produced are morphologically and genetically similar to their parents and are thus, called clones.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
