    Answer:

    Heredity contributes to tendencies to overeat, to be sedentary, or to be less able to convert fat to fuel.

    Explanation:

    Heredity refers to passing of traits from one generation to another generation. If the parent of the child is affected with obesity, during zygote formation of the obesity gene gets expressed in the child, the child may develop the risk of obesity.

    This gene influences the regular dieting habit of the child and also makes the child the victim of syndromes such as Bardet-Biedl and Prader-Willi.
