Answer :

Both father and mother contribute one sex chromosome each to the offspring. Mother has two X chromosomes whereas father has one X and one Y chromosome. So the offspring obtain one X chromosome from mother and whether X or Y chromosome inherited from father will determine the sex of the child. If X chromosome is inherited from father the offspring will be a girl but if it is Y then the baby will be a boy.
