Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Ans:

B. Artificial selection is selection by humans rather than the environment.

We human can select to breed dogs and wolves together to make a better species. We breed grain and grasses together to create a better yields.  We bred cattle, sheeps, and horses to be stronger.  Artificial selection is based on what the person desire the traits to be; it is not always for a better fit. We human are responsible for breeding the traits we want. This is artificial selection.
