Consider the following statements :

I. Asexual reproduction preserves the genetic information while sexual reproduction permits variations.

II. Traditional hybridisation often leads to inclusion and multiplication of undesirable genes along with the desired genes.

III. rDNA technology allows us to isolate and introduce only one or set of desirable genes without introducing undesirable genes in the target organism

Which of the above statements are true?

1. I and II only

2. I and III only

3. II and III only

4. I,II and III
