      If there is a mutation in a zygote, it will be found in every cell of the fetus

      Explanation:
      Zygote is a diploid cell formed from male sperm and female egg during fertilization. This zygote turns into a fetus with continuous mitotic division.

      As all the fetus cells come from the zygote itself, it is obvious that all the cells will have the mutation which occurred in the zygote.
