              Question:
              Discuss the genetic background existing between meiosis and sexual
              reproduction and we are also asked to find a disorder with specific
              inheritance pattern resulting from mutation.

              Eukaryotic cells can divide by mitosis or meiosis. In humans, mitosis produces new cells for
              growth and repair. And, meiosis produces sex cells (gametes), called sperm and eggs. Changes
              or mutations in genes in sex cells can be inherited by human offspring. Genetic variation in a
              population of organisms is good; however, sometimes mutations can be harmful or cause
              genetic disorders.


              Briefly, answer the following questions:


                   1. How do meiosis and sexual reproduction (fertilization) produce offspring that differ
                        genetically from the parents?
                   2. Describe one example of a human disorder that is inherited and also describe the
                        specific inheritance pattern. For this example, pick disorders that result from mutations
                        in DNA or chromosome number rather than examples such as a genetic tendency for a
                        disorder such as cancer.


              Solution:
              Introduction:


              Genes are the integral part of the human life and play a huge role in determining the sex of the

              human when it undergoes the process of reproduction especially meiosis and fertilization. The

              difference in the genes in each individual determines the characteristics of the of each person
