  1. C is probably what your teacher wants, but I suspect there was some genetic variation, but not in the disease tolerance to this disease.

  4. I think the answer is D since if ALL the onions were genetically the same, they would have all died out. I guess the only onion that survived has a DIFFERENT genetic traits from the others who have died.

    -THIS IS ONLY MY OPINION
