      They do! Each child will get one chromosome copy from their mother and one from their father. So the chances of getting the same copy of the chromosome that a related sibling did is 1 in 2 for each copy of each chromosome.

      Of course! Its why siblings look similar most of the time 🙂 They are sharing the same genes! 😀
