Give one example each of characters that are inherited and the ones that are acquired in humans. Mention the difference between the inherited and the

acquired characters.


 Eye colour or hair colour of a person is an example of inherited character whereas body weight is an example of acquired character. The basic difference between inherited and acquired character is that inherited character is passed on from parent to offspring. On the other hand, acquired characters are acquired by an individual during his lifetime depending upon his lifestyle.
