Solution

(a) Yes, the test must be banned because of its misuse to determine the sex of the foetus. Because of the small family norm, every family wants a male child. The female foetus is destroyed. This has resulted in the decline in the female population which can create social problems for future generations.

(b) Many genetic disorders, if present, can be diagnosed by amniocentesis.
