C. Cloning
D. Geneology

Check Answer

The correct answer is A. Eugenics.
Eugenics is the study of improving the genetic quality of the human population through selective breeding and other means of controlling reproduction. This concept originated in the late 19th century and gained popularity in the early 20th century as a means of promoting the hereditary traits that were believed to be desirable, while suppressing those that were deemed undesirable. Eugenics has been widely criticized for its unethical and discriminatory practices, including forced sterilization and euthanasia of individuals deemed “unfit” or “inferior” by the eugenicists.
Biotechnology is the application of biological techniques and processes to develop products or services for human use, such as genetic engineering, drug development, and agricultural biotechnology. Cloning is the process of creating genetically identical copies of organisms, cells, or DNA fragments. Genealogy is the study of family lineage and history, tracing the descent of individuals and families over time.
