Q8:

In the 1800s, in London, peppered moths were both light colored and dark colored.

This helped the dark-colored moths camouflage better. The dark-colored peppered moths were now more likely to survive to pass on their dark-color trait to their offspring. Therefore, the number of dark-colored moths got bigger over time.
