Eye colour or hair colour of a person is an example of inherited character whereas, body weight is an example of acquired character. The basic difference between inherited and acquired character is that inherited character is passed on from parent to offspring and acquired characters are acquired by an individual during his lifetime depending upon his lifestyle.
