    Genetic Factor Definition “a trait or characteristic that purely depends on the genes you inherit from your biological mother and father”

    Environmental Factor Definition “a trait or characteristic that can vary based on your behaviour or environment around you”

    Length of hair- (environmental as you can get a hair cut which changes the length of your hair, the same as you can grow your hair)

    Colour of eyes- (genetic as whether your eyes are blue, brown, green, etc.... is based on what genes you inherit from your parents)

    Shape of chin-(genetic, again it’s based on the genes you inherit from your biological parents)

    Skin colour - (can be a funny one this one, your natural skin colour will be, once again, based upon your parents’ skin colour but it can be altered by tanning, skin lighterning or fake tan. Overall though, I’d say it’s more genetic)

    Hair colour - (again, can be either really. Your natural hair colour is based upon what colour hair your mum and dad have. However, you can buy hair dye and change your hair colour so it can be considered environmental)

    Hope this helps
