All of them have a common body plan, structure, physiology and metabolism. All of them have a constant chromosome number, that is, 46, their genetic makeup is also similar, almost 99.9% DNA is same in all humans. And also all the humans can freely inter-breed to produce offsprings. Not only this, study of evolution of human beings indicates that all of us come from Africa. Moreover, all human beings can interbreed with each other which shows that all of them belong to the same species. Some common characters of all human beings are –
