It is a matter of chance whether a couple will have a male or a female child. Justify this statement by drawing a flow chart.



A male has XY sex chromosomes, while a female has XX sex chromosomes.
Parent Line------------------XY * XX
Gametes --------------------X Y * X X
F 1 generation -------------XX  XY 

Whatever maybe the gender of the child the mother contributes only the X chromosome. If the X chromosome of the father fuses, then the baby born is a girl. If the Y chromosome  of the father fuses, then the baby born is a boy. 

Hence it is a matter of chance whether the baby born is a girl or a boy.

 Thank you.....!!!!
