1. In Hamilton's opinion, how should reproductive success be measured?
- At the level of the genes not the species, group or individual
- In relation to the individual you show an altruistic act
- Those we share less genes with, the individual and groups
- Types of species

- 100 percent
- 25 percent or 0.25
- 50 percent or 0.5

3. What is Altruism?
- The hinderance if reproductive success to the recipient
- Self sacrificing behaviour - the donor incurs reproductive cost (c) while the recipient incurs reproductive benefit (b)
- The survival of one species through sacrificing resources
- The process in which all humans do a self sacrificing act
4. Why can it be argued that altruism is not pro evolutionary?
- It is not evolutionary stable strategy ESS
- If all humans and species did altruistic acts our species would fail to flourish
- Overtime human beings and other species have evolved to be self sufficient
- None of the above
5. What is Hamilton's rule?
- r b > c with r= coefficient to relatedness. B = benefit to group of species. C= cost to the donar
- A & B
- r b> c with r = coefficient to relatedness. b= benefit to the recipient. c= cost to the donor
- r c > b with r = degree of shared genes. B= benefit to the donor. C= cost to the recipient
