List in tabular form, two distinguishing features between the acquired traits and the inherited traits with one example of each.



 Acquired Traits
Acquired traits are the traits that are experienced by a person during his/her lifetime.
In acquired traits, changes in non-reproductive tissues (or somatic cells) are not passed on to the germ cells or progeny.
Examples include learning dance and riding a bike.

Inherited Traits 
Inherited traits are distinguishing qualities or characteristics that a person acquires from his/her ancestors.  In inherited traits, changes in the DNA are transmitted to the progeny. Examples include eye colour and skin colour.
