Answer :

In Sexual reproduction, gamete fusion occurs and the genetic material transfers from both the parents after which reduction division (meiosis) takes place to reduce the diploid body (2n) into a haploid body(n). The progeny resembles the parents.

In asexual reproduction fusion of gametes does not take place, genetic material transfers from the parent body to the new born but no reduction division takes place. The progeny is similar to the parent.
