. How is the sex of the child determined in human beings
Solution- Sex of a child depends on the chromosome in the gamete of the father. The unfertilized egg has one X chromosome. The sperm either has X chromosome or Y chromosome. If sperm carrying Y chromosome fertilizes with the egg, male child will be born with the genetic constitution XY. But if sperm carrying X chromosome fertilized with the egg, female child will be born with the genetic constitution XX.
