  • Question 4
    30 seconds
    Q. Common ancestry relates to evolution because
    answer choices
    evolution only happens when there are common ancestors.
    Common ancestors make evolution happen more quickly.
    evolution can never take place with common ancestors.
    the more two organisms have in common, the more recent is their common ancestor during their evolution.
