Heredity and Evolution


How did Mendel explain that it is possible that a trait is inherited but not expressed in an organism?


With the help of one example for each, distinguish between the acquired traits and the inherited traits. Why are the traits / experiences acquired during the entire lifetime of an individual not inherited in the next generation? Explain the reason of this fact with an example.


What are acquired traits? Why are these traits generally not inherited over generations? Explain.


How do Mendel’s experiments show that traits may be dominant or recessive?
