The genomes of three species of mouse are being sequenced, and a particular DNA sequence found in all three species is found to have a steady mutation rate. The sequence of interest for these three species is shown below. Species A: ATTCGGATTATTCGAGG Species B: GTCCGGTTCATTGGACA Species C: ATCCAGATCGTTCGTGG Which of the following inferences can be made, based on this information? (2 points) Species B and Species C most likely diverged from Species A since they both have more mutations than Species A. Species B most likely evolved from Species C since they are closest to each other in terms of number of mutations. Species A and Species C most likely share the most recent common ancestor since they differ by the fewest mutations. Species C most likely diverged from Species A more recently than Species B since Species C has fewer mutations than Species B. need help
