Answer :

The chromosomes are located in the nucleus of a cell and they contain information for the inheritance of traits from the parents to the next generation in the form of DNA molecules so the characteristics of a parent organism are transmitted to their off springs. DNA is the information source for making proteins. If information is different, different protein will be made that lead to altered body design.

Example: Offspring's produced by asexual reproduction have slight variations from their parents.
