Expert Answer:

Acquired traits are the changes caused in non-reproductive tissues by the environmental factors. For example, darkening of the skin due to prolonged sun exposure which does not have any survival advantage. It does not show any significance in evolution. Therefore, acquired traits are not inherited.
