2.3.2 Why are boys more vulnerable to some conditions?

In some conditions that affect more males than females (such as colourblindness), the explanation has been found to lie in genes on the X chromosome. Most females have two X chromosomes (one inherited from each parent) while most males have an XY combination. This means that if someone should inherit an X-linked gene predisposing to a particular condition, compensation for this will be easier for a female (whose other X chromosome may have a ‘normal’ copy of the gene) than for a male

At their simplest, boundaries put limits on tasks so that they appear manageable. They help to mark out personal space in a shared office, or indicat
