Solution

Reproduction maintains the number of chromosomes specific to a species in each generation. Multicellular organisms have specialised cells in their gonads, which have only half the number of chromosomes and half the amount of DNA as compared to non-reproductive body cells. So, when these germ cells from 2 different individuals combine during sexual reproduction to
form a new individual, it results in the re-establishment of the number of chromosomes and the DNA content in the new generation. Thus, it provides stability to the population of a species.
