Which statement best explains the fact that some identical twins appear different from one another?


Question asked by: knowitall

This is due to the environment or the phenotype.

Although monozygotic identical twins share the same genetic material, they will have a different physical environment at all times.

Thus for instance one twin may be attached more advantageously to the placenta, perhaps resulting in an increased birthweight and so forth.
