NCERT Solutions for Class 10 Science Chapter 9- Heredity and Evolution


Charles Darwin once said, and I quote, “We will now discuss in a little more detail the Struggle for Existence.” Science Chapter 9 Heredity and Evolutions deals with the information regarding variations and their types, inheritance, Mendel’s work, types of crosses, evolution & its classification, and lastly, Human evolution.

Genetics deals with the study of Heredity and Variation. Heredity can be explained as the transformation of traits from one generation to the next, and the difference of traits between the parent and offspring is called variation. We’ll learn more about it in the chapter and the types of variation and accumulation of variation during reproduction. We will study the experiments of Gregor Johann Mendel, the father of Genetics. We will also study the Mendelian Synthetic Theory of Evolution also known as the Modern Theory of Evolution or Darwin's Theory of Evolution. 

We’ll know about the different types of crosses and also the conditions. Expression of traits is an important topic of this chapter. We’ll acquire knowledge about the determination of sex and the difference between acquired traits and inherited traits. The process of evolutions and their classifications will be taught thoroughly with the evidence of evolution from the study of fossils. Evolution by artificial selection is a part of this chapter.

Lastly, we will be learning about human evolution. This is a major topic in the fields of evolution. This chapter helps us understand the origin of different species and how they’ve become what they are now. Genetics is a diverse topic, so understand it better, go through the chapter deeply.
