Expert Answer:

In sexual reproduction, there is mixing of male and female genes, giving rise to variations. Hence new combinations of characters appear in offsprings

It increases diversity giving rise to a greater variation among individuals and in the population.

Speciation and evolution is made possible through sexual reproduction

In case of changing conditions, sexually reproducing organisms have greater diversity, enabling them to have greater survival chances.
