Explain how two organisms can have the same phenotype but different genotypes

(1) Answers

Phenotypes are the physical characteristics of an organism, whereas the genotypes are the genetic make up. Having the same or similar phenotypes is based upon chance. For example, two individuals may have blond hair, blue eyes and fair skin, but they are not related at all. Their genotype is different as they have different parents and relatives and so on, but physically, they can look the same, perhaps due to environmental factors.
