What was the main reason for Mendel's ability to discover unit factors of inheritance? a. his ability to make hybrids b. grant support c. disbelief in the fixity of species d. careful cataloging of observations e. Darwin's discovery of evolution 6. The characteristics of the hereditary material are: a. pangenesis, spontaneous creation, inheritance of acquired characteristics, and special creation b. replication, transcription, translation, and recombination c. replication, mutation, expression, and storage d. all of the above e. none of the above 7.

Explain by way of examples how inheritance is obvious in the world around us, even without a modern scientific approach.
