A “conditional strategy” is unquestionably an adaptation when individuals able to switch tactics (a)leave some surviving descendants to carry their genes into the next generation. (b)leave more surviving offspring than individuals using any other strategy. (c)can leave surviving offspring who will adopt the most successful tactic. (d)are better able to adjust to changing conditions than other members of their species. (e)can leave equal numbers of surviving offspring using any of their tactics.
