least likely be observed in the algae-eater population over the
course of many generations?

composed of more, and larger, young
D) Selection for algae-eaters that become sexually mature at
smaller overall body sizes
E) Selection for algae-eaters that are faster swimmers
C) Selection for larger female algae-eaters, bearing broods
composed of more, and larger, young
