Question

Which of the following is an advantage of continued inbreeding? 

Easy
Solution

Inbreeding increases homozygosity and hence helps in producing purelines. Inbreeding and along with selection at each generation helps in fixing of desired traits. 

Continued inbreeding, especially close inbreeding, usually reduces fertility and even productivity. 

Heterosis (hybrid vigour) is the outcome of outbreeding.
