Heredity

Heredity is the passing of traits from parents or ancestors to the offspring (children). This is the process by which an offspring cell or organism gets its characteristics from its parents or ancestors. Through heredity, variations exhibited by individuals can accumulate and cause some species to evolve. The study of heredity is called genetics.

It was hard to decide who I look more like, because I don’t usually pay attention to the similarities between me and my parents. In the end, I think that I look more like my father, because most of my characteristics are from my father, for example my face and my hobby (computers). Also some of my characteristics are like my mother, for example my height.
