Solution :-

The statement holds true - only variations provide an advantage to individual organisms that will survive in a population. For example, variations that lead to the increase in heat-resistance in bacteria is very useful for survival if it finds itself in an environment where there is a sudden increase in ambient temperature. This will determine the difference between life and death for the bacteria.
