Solution 1

No, because geographical isolation does not affect much in asexually reproducing organisms. Asexually reproducing organisms pass on the parent DNA to offsprings that leaves no chance of speciation. However, geographical isolation works as a major factor in cross pollinated species. As it would result in pollinated species. As it would result in accumulation of variation in the two geographically separated population.

Solution 2

Geographical isolation cannot be a major factor in the speciation of an asexually reproducing organism, as it does not require the aid of any other organism to carry out reproduction.
