Is eye color a discontinuous or continuous variation? Why is everyone saying that it's a discontinuous variation, when you obviously have a gradation of different colors around the world in the human population, and it's a polygenic trait determined by many genes! So shouldn't it be a continuous variation, just like hair color and skin color?

Try some of the following links for information:

I have already tried the links. none of them was of any help.

Since Jiskha does not have a regular biology tutor, you might try this site.

If there is a tutor here who can help you with this particular question, I'm sure he/she will add a response. 
Sorry, but Google is now throwing in an extra "s" which we must remove so that the link will work for you:
