Solution

Such traits are called acquired traits. Acquired traits are experienced by an individual during his lifetime. These traits involve changes in non reproductive cells (somatic cells) which are not transferred to germ cells. So, these traits cannot be passed on to the next generation.

For example:- Learning skills like swimming, dancing, cooking, body building, etc are acquired traits and can not be passed on to the next generation.
