    You missed them both.
    Is your home school religious based? Evolution is not a word Darwin used. He used the noun "evolved" just once in Origin of the Species. Darwin never published a theory of evolution, nor used those words. Those words came years later, who wanted to put forth their ideas, using Darwin's ideas on natural selection to explain how diverse traits seemed to be favored by survival or reproductive rate over other traits.

    Now on 28, my response to your A or D comment is ....groan....how possibly could natural selection of certain traits in animals or plants lead to changes in the environment? Most of us view changes in the environment causing changes in animals or plants, sometimes leading to their demise.
