Question 1 0 / 1 point Please select the response that answers most-correctly the question.It is common to observe female birds soliciting “extra-pair copulations” if they are mated to a male that holds a poor-quality territory. But if a female is mated to a male on a high-quality territory, she is unlikely to solicit copulations with other males. The switch is an example of which of the following? Question options: a) classical conditioning b) mate choice based on resources provided by a male c) a fixed action pattern (innate behavior) d) condition-dependent behavior Question 2 0 / 1 point Please select the response that answers most-correctly the question.
