Luther Burbank was a plant breeder who developed a strain of potato plant that produced more tubers of larger size than other potato plants that were grown on farms at the time. This strain of potato was also resistant to the potato blight that had wiped out the potato crops in Ireland in the mid-1800s. How did Burbank's process in developing this potato compare to the process of natural selection?

a. Burbank's process was slower.
b. Burbank's process did not affect the genetic makeup of the potato.
c. Burbank's process did not place the potato plant under any type of selection.
d. Burbank's process did not involve environmental pressures to shape the outcome.

Is it D?

    I would assume so.
