Identify the type of natural selection (distruptive, stabilizing, directional, sexual, runaway or cummullative) operating in these examples:
a) The diversity among honey creepers
b) Peacock’s tail
c) Central nervous system
d) Egg size in robins
e) Body size in blue whale
f) Courtship dance of blue-footed booby
I read about all the different types of selection.

c) Central nervous system is cumulative
d) Egg size in robins is ----not sure at all about this one
e) Body size of whale is directional selection.
f) Courtship dance shows sexual selection
If someone can check for me and tell me as soon as possible it will be really appreciated.
