What is Male pseudohermaphroditism ? How is it caused?..

Answer / kk pandey

The normal sex chromosome in male is XY whereas in female it
is XX.
But due to some problem in cell division in meiosis the number
of x chromosome in that particular sperm/ovum increases.
This cell when fertilized gives rise to a zygote having XXY as
thei sex chromosome.
This extra chrmsome increases the famina (female) character in
that male individual.
These Males are known as pseudohermaphrodite. and their
character is known as pseudohermaphroditism.
