1. Which of the following are basic components of the Hardy-Weinberg equation? A. Allele frequencies in a subset of the population B. Frequencies of two alleles in a gene pool before and after many random matings C. Allele frequencies, phenotype frequencies D. Allele frequencies, number of individuals in the population 2. Which of the following statements is not part of the Hardy-Weinberg principle? A. When alleles are transmitted according to the rules of Mendelian inheritance, their frequencies do not change over time. B. If allele frequencies in a population are given by p and q, then genotype frequencies will be given by p2, 2pq, and q2 for generation after generation. C. Even if allele A1 is dominant to allele A2, it does not increase in frequency. D. The genotype frequencies in the offspring generation must add up to 2. 3. True of false? The Hardy-Weinberg model makes the following assumptions: no selection at the gene in question; no genetic drift; no gene flow; no mutation; random mating. 4. What is the frequency of the A1A2 genotype in a population composed of
