What would the answers be to the following questions?

Which of these statements best describes autosomal recessive inheritance? a. Individuals who are homozygous for the recessive allele show the trait. b. Individuals who are homozygous for the dominant allele are known as carriers. c. Individuals who are heterozygous for the recessive allele show the trait. d. Autosomal alleles are found on the X and Y chromosomes.

Where are the pairs of alleles that determine the trait for a particular character found? a. locus on homologous chromosomes b. base on homozygous genes c. gene on gametes d. nucleotide on genesWhich of these statements best characterizes the genetic code? a. In the genetic code, each nucleotide pair encodes for one amino acid. b. The genetic code applies only to animals, which are the most highly evolved organisms. C. The genetic code contains many synonyms in specifying amino acids (redundancy) d. Of the 64 codons, 3 function as start codons and 1 as a stop codon.

What is the main characteristic of inheritance in the expression of incomplete dominance? a. The dominant gene always masks expression of the recessive gene. b. The character of the recessive gene can be fully expressed in the heterozygote. c. The heterozygote has a blended phenotype that is different from that of either homozygote. d. Offspring have three different alleles for the same trait, each with a different phenotype.
