Solution

The following are the three reasons that led to the delay in accepting Mendel's work:
  • Lack of communication and publicity.

  • His concept of factors (genes) as discrete units that did not blend with each other was not accepted in the light of variations occurring continuously in nature.

  • Mendel’s approach to explain biological phenomenon with the help of mathematics was also not accepted.
