Geneticists have determined that the majority of individuals in an isolated island population have blood type B. Type A blood is found to be more common in the mainland population from which the island was settled.
How could a geneticist best explain the dominance of blood type B in the island population?
A. Random mutations have occurred in the island population.
B. Genetic drift has reduced the frequency of type A individuals.
C. Natural selection has only occurred in the mainland population.
D. Environmental conditions on the island are less favorable for type B individuals.
