Artificial Selection.

It's so that if an animal was to eat them, the pieces would hopefully be carried to different places thus spreading the seeds.

why would an animal not, y'know... eat the whole thing?

Actually is evolution

The oranges were always attacked by africans with machetes so they developed pre-sliced sections, so there is a very small change the machete will slice right through the orange and not harming its juicy innards

They are called carpels, every flowering plant has them in some number. The simplest example I can think of is a bean which is a single carpel. Imagine a leaf folds over a seed growing at its edge and you have how carpels evolved basically. Carpels group up primarily to increase number and thickness of walls, these are protective. A huge part of my studies in plant science has been on this stuff. In case you care oranges are a kind of fruit called a hesperidium which is unique to the citrus genus.

What? Since when are oranges pre-sliced? Do you mean there are groing sliced of orange on trees?
User avatar #50 to #47 - cormy (07/12/2014) [-]
He means that oranges have uh... Slices. I can't... Say it any other way. When you open an orange there are many individual juicy little pieces to it, each individually packaged with their owns skins. We refer to these as slices.

they are like that so that if one "slice"were to get cut, not the entire fruit would leak empty

Its probably so that it easily splits so different animals can carry different seeds to different places.
