Which of the following is inheritable?
A. an altered gene in sperm

B. an altered gene in liver cells

C. an altered gene in skin cells

D. an altered gene in udder cells

Answer :

An altered gene in sperm is inheritable because the genes are transferred by sperm and egg so if there was any alteration in sperm with the egg than that alteration will be inherited by the child. Liver cells, skin cells, and udder cells are somatic cells but sperm is a reproductive cell. So, variation or mutation or alteration in the reproductive cell only passes on.
