Mother gives birth to a baby but the baby has characters of both parents. How is this possible?
Answer:
Although mother gives birth to a child, fertilisation involves two gametes, one from the mother and the other from father. The zygote, therefore has both father and mother’s contribution. Since the zygote develops into the baby it has characters of both parents.
