Q
Heredity and Evolution

Question:

In evolutionary terms, we have more in common with

(a) a Chinese school-boy.

(b) a chimpanzee.

(c) a spider.

(d) a bacterium.

Answer:

Evolution is a slow process that involves several stages from the simple to the complex. All humans have evolved from a single ancestor living in Africa. There are different races based on skin color but all belong to the one species named Homo sapiens. From Africa, our ancestors slowly spread throughout the globe and there is a continuous gene flow among them. So, in evolutionary terms, we have more in common with a Chinese school-boy.

Hence, the correct answer is  (a) a Chinese school-boy.
