Solution :-

There is no such thing as adaptive radiation in human evolution. One way to define adaptive radiation is that it occurs when new species evolve from one common ancestor. Even though we share an ancestor, human evolution has seen gradual but progressive changes in our bodies, eating habits, etc. Diversification into new species, a characteristic of adaptive radiation, is not part of human evolution.
