The passage given below is followed by four alternate summaries. Choose the option that best captures the author's position
Question 29 : Artificial embryo twinning is a relatively low-tech way to make clones. As the name suggests, this technique mimics the natural process that creates identical twins. In nature, twins form very early in development when the embryo splits in two. Twinning happens in the first days after egg and sperm join, while the embryo is made of just a small number of unspecialized cells. Each half of the embryo continues dividing on its own, ultimately developing into separate, complete individuals. Since they developed from the same fertilized egg, the resulting individuals are genetically identical.
The paragraph states that artificial embryo twinning is relatively low-tech and that it mimics the natural twinning process, where in the first days after fertilization, the embryo splits into two genetically identical individuals. Option 1 simply rephrases this.
Option 3 is clearly incorrect, as it states that artificial embryo twinning is unlike natural twinning. Option 2 is incorrect, as it states that twins are formed during fertilization. Option 4 is a bit vague and not as precise as option 1.
Choice A is the correct answer.
