5 Matching questions

  1. How can two alleles from different genes be inherited together?
  2. Multiple alleles
  3. How many sets of genes are found in most adult organisms?
  4. Heterozygous
  5. Meiosis
  1. a process by which the number of chromosomes per cell is cut in half through the separation of homologous chromosomes in a diploid cell
  2. b a gene that has more than two alleles
  3. c Alleles of different genes tend to be inherited together when those genes are on the same chromosome.
  4. d The diploid cells of most adult organisms contain two complete sets of inherited chromosomes and so two complete sets of genes.
  5. e having two different alleles for a trait

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. N
  2. states that genes for different traits can segregate independently during the formation of gametes
  3. Allele
  4. Punnett squares use probability to predict the combinations of alleles in a genetic cross.
  5. a fertilized egg

5 True/False questions

  1. CodominanceSituation in which the phenotypes produced by both alleles are completely expressed


  2. 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.


  3. Homozygoushaving two identical alleles for a trait


  4. Homologousterm used to refer to chromosomes in which one set comes from the male parent and one set comes from the female parent


  5. 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)
