    Ans.  (2) 

    Eugenics is the study of methods of improving the quality of human populations by applications of genetic principles. Positive eugenics would seek to do this by selective breeding programmes  . Negative eugenics aims to eliminate the harmful genes (e.g. those causing haemophilia and colour blindness) by counseling any prospective parents who are likely to be carried.
