Expert Answer:

DNA contains information for determining the body design of an individual. DNA copying or replication ensures that during cell division equal amount of DNA (genetic material) passes in to the daughter cells.

So DNA copying or replication plays an important role in inheritance of characters from parents to offspring. It also helps in survival of organisms by similar copying. Errors during DNA copying lead to evolution.
