discrete. A coma scale used, Glasgow, is discrete. Also, vision is
expressed as discrete values. See attached related links. In
addition, number of seizures is discrete along with pulse (heart)
rate.

### What is discrete variation?

Answer
Discrete variation refers to differences in characteristics that
have a defined form. You can think of it as being either/or.
For example. Your earlobes are either attached or they are not. Or
whether or not you can roll your tongue.
Continuous variation comes in a range of forms.
For example. Height - is not a set number or another.

### Does this means that all symmetric distribution are normal Explain?

Don't know what "this" is, but all symmetric distributions are
not normal. There are many distributions, discrete and continuous
that are not normal. The uniform or binomial distributions are
examples of discrete symmetric distibutions that are not normal.
The uniform and the beta distribution with equal parameters are
examples of a continuous distribution that is not normal.
The uniform distribution can be discrete or continuous.

###### Asked in Fingerprints

### Is fingerprint a discontinuous variation?

Yes it is, because in discontinuous variation, the differences
are clear cut and discrete, meaning that they will not merge/blend
into each other. Another example of discontinuous variation would
be horns in cattle. There is either the presence or absence of
horns on a cow, you will not see a cow "almost having a horn".

### What are the differences between Continuous and discrete variation?

Continuous variations have a wide range of possibilities. For
example, your height is a continuous variation. There are many
options (for example you could be 5'9, 4'6, 6'1) rather than an
either/or situation. Discrete variations have only two
possibilities. They can be thought of as "either/or" situations.
For example, you can either roll your tongue or you can't. There is
no grey area or in-between.

###### Asked in Genetics

### Differences between continuous and discontinuous variation?

Continuous variation is where there is a spectrum of values for
a given variable. Examples of this would include height in the
human population, coat color among domestic cats and decibel level
of lawnmowers.
Discontinuous variation is where there are a set of discrete
values for a given variable. Examples of this would include number
of live births in the human population (0, 1, 2, etc, but not 1.5
or 2.63), gender among domestic cats (male, female, neuter), and
number of tires on...
