The study explains the human altruism of sexual selection hypothesis given by Darwin in 1871. It states that altruism is a sexually selected trait to increase the chances of being attracted, retain and reproduce with the other sex. The experiment was based on the attractive and non-attractive images and was conducted non-financially and financially using DV and IV. The participants were chosen from a large group of undergraduate students and were presented with a series of images to rate on the basis of attractiveness.
