- a process by which the number of chromosomes per cell is cut in half through the separation of homologous chromosomes in a diploid cell
- b a gene that has more than two alleles
- c Alleles of different genes tend to be inherited together when those genes are on the same chromosome.
- d The diploid cells of most adult organisms contain two complete sets of inherited chromosomes and so two complete sets of genes.

5 True/False questions
Codominance → Situation in which the phenotypes produced by both alleles are completely expressed
How is a phenotype different from a genotype? → Mitosis can be a form of asexual reproduction, does not change the number of chromosomes, and makes two identical diploid cells. Meiosis is a step in sexual reproduction, cuts chromosomes in half, and makes four different haploid cells.
Homozygous → having two identical alleles for a trait
Homologous → term used to refer to chromosomes in which one set comes from the male parent and one set comes from the female parent
What is meant by a polygenic trait? → The trait is visible whenever a dominant allele is present in the genotype such as TT or Tt(both tall)
