(Kindly explain the option {b} also)

a) Hardy-Weinberg disequilibrium 
b) Tendency towards assortive mating
c) Reduced gene flow
d) Loss of genetic variability

Dear Student,
Please find below the solution to the asked query:

The loss of genetic variability is a potential danger to a population that has been greatly reduced in number.
Hence, the correct option is (d).

Assortative mating is a type of sexual mating of organisms in which the individuals of a population mate with other individuals of similar genotypes or phenotypes. So, it increases the chances of survival of population.
