  • What are the possible genotypes and phenotypes of the parents and the daughter?


Question 4b1

XC XCXc XCY

XcXcXc XcY

parents: XcY and XCXcor XcXc

father colorblind

mother carrier or colorblind

daughter: XcXc - colorblind


Question 5

Question #5

  • In humans, the presence of freckles is due to a dominant gene (F) and the non-freckled condition is due to its recessive allele (f).

  • Dimpled cheeks (D) are dominant to non-dimpled cheeks (d).


Question 5a

Question #5A

  • Two persons with freckles and dimpled cheeks have two children: one has freckles but no dimples and one has dimples but no freckles.

  • What are the genotypes of the parents?Parents:F__D__ x F__D__

    Children: F__dd x ffD__


Question 5b

Question #5B

  • What are the possible phenotypes and genotypes of the children that they could produce?

  • Cross: FfDd x FfDd

  • This is a dihybrid cross


Question 5b1

Question #5B

  • Possible gametes for both: FD Fd fD fd

Phenotype:Freckles/Dimples:9

Freckles/no dimples:3

no freckles/Dimples:3

no freckles/no dimples:1

    Answer:1/8


Question 6

Question #6

  • Sixteen percent of the human population is known to be able to wiggle their ears.

  • This trait is determined to be a recessive gene.

  • These is a population genetics question.

  • Use the following equation: 1 = p2 + 2pq + q2


Question 6a

Question #6A

  • What of the population is homozygous dominant for this trait?

  • q2 = 16% or .16:q2 = .16

    q = .4

  • then use:1 = p + q

    1 = p + .4

    1- .4 = p

    p = .6

  • Now use p2 for answer: .62 = .36 or 36%


Question 6b

Question #6B

  • What of the population is heterozygous for this trait?

  • We know thatq = .4andp = .6

  • Now use 2pq for answer: 2(.6)(.4) = .48 or 48%


Question 7

Question #7

  • In dogs, the inheritance of hair color involves a gene B for black hair and gene b for brown hair b.

  • A dominant C is also involved. It must be present for the color to be synthesized.

  • If this gene is not present, a blond condition results.

    BB, Bb- black hairCC, Cc- color

    bb- brown haircc- blond


Question 7a

Question #7A

  • A brown haired male, whose father was a blond, is mated with a black haired female, whose mother was brown haired and her father was blond.

    Male: bbCc (gametes: bC bc)

    Female: BbCc (gametes: BC Bc bCbc)

  • What is the expected ratios of their offspring?


Question 7a1

Question #7A

BC Bc bCbc

bC BbCC BbCc bbCC bbCc

bc BbCc Bbcc bbCc bbcc

Offspring ratios:

Black:3/8

Brown:3/8

Blond:2/8 or 1/4


Question 8

Question #8

  • Henry Anonymous, a film star, was involved in a paternity case. The woman bringing suit had two children, on whose blood type was A and the other whose blood type was B.

  • Her blood type was O, the same as Henry’s!

  • The judge in the case awarded damages to the woman damages to the woman, saying that Henry had to be the father of at least one of the children.


Question 8a

Question #8A

  • Obviously, the judge should be sentenced to Biology. For Henry to have been the father of both children, his blood type would have had to be what?
