genetics and heredity are the same thing -is this true or false

Dear Student.
Please find below the solution to the asked query.

Though both the terms
 are interrelated, however both the terms doesn't holds the same meaning.
Heredity is just the transmission of characteristics of one generation to the next successive generation.
Genetics is the study of heredity, but its not limited to heredity. Its a broad subject deals with various aspects. Heredity is a concept but genetics deals with all the tools and theories that is needed to study heredity. Mutations may be a part of genetics but not the part of heredity.

So the statement is false.
