Solution

The correct option is A True
Neo - lamarckism, through relevant experiments and a new branch of genetics known as epigenetics, supports Lamarck's concept of inheritance of acquired characters. In such cases, environmental changes affecting somatic cells may get inherited through the germ cells. In some cases, germ cells may also be directly affected by environmental changes. Therefore germ cells formed from somatic cells can inherit changes in those somatic cells, due to influential environmental changes.
