Which of the following statements most accurately and completely describes the essential properties of evolution by natural selection? a. Randomly arising changes in design information compete for limited opportunities to replicate in a crowded environment, leading to the evoluton of anatomy and behavior. b. Randomly arising changes in design information usually improve the design of the organism, leading to the evolution of antomy and behavior. c. Changes in design information deliberately produced by an evolved mechanism, improve the design of the organism, leading to evolution of anatomy and behavior. d.
