    Albinism is a __________ defect

    Correct Answer
    chromosomal
    genetic
    Explanation
    Albinism is a genetic defect that affects the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for the color of our skin, hair, and eyes. It is caused by mutations in genes that are involved in the production of melanin. These mutations can occur in various chromosomes, hence making albinism both a chromosomal and genetic defect. The chromosomal aspect refers to the location of the mutated genes on the chromosomes, while the genetic aspect refers to the inheritance pattern of the condition.
