One of the main advantages of sexual reproduction is that there is a large chance of evolution taking place. Thus the species would be able to adapt to new environmental conditions.
Also new species could be born.
Another advantage is that a new character is formed with the mixed gametes of the parents so there is a chance that the parent’s diseases would not be received by the offspring
