I would say, your previous genetic ancestor with the XX chromosome.

It sounds like a question a student will overlook in his textbook, and get him a little stumped when he has to answer it for his homewor. But you are lucky mith gave you the answer.

well its none of my home works...

its just one of those few questions I came across with while I was taking my Evolutionary biology last year

no need for you to worry that i might use your opinions as an answer to an assignment...


well this question is nice because i often use it in an argument with somebody who strictly doesnt believe in evolution at all

but not until ive come across this question did i realize how important it was to include embriology in the study of evolution :wink:
