1 of 2

The term diversity means variety. D is incorrect because generic diversity refers to the genetic variation that is present among species. It gives the sum of genetic information that is found in the genes of different species. Therefore, C is the correct answer. Biodiversity refers to the variety of organisms and other life forms that exist on a particular area.
