1 Biology , 8e (Campbell) Chapter 14 Mendel and the Gene Idea Multiple Choice Questions 1) Pea plants were particularly well suited for use in Mendel's breeding experiments for all of the following reasons except that A) peas show easily observed variations in a number of characters, such as pea shape and flower color. B) it is possible to control matings between different pea plants. C) it is possible to obtain large numbers of progeny from any given cross. D) peas have an unusually long generation time. E) many of the observable characters that vary in pea plants are controlled by single genes. Answer: D Topic: Concept 14.1 Skill: Knowledge/Comprehension 2) What is the difference between a monohybrid cross and a dihybrid cross? A) A monohybrid cross involves a single parent, whereas a dihybrid cross involves two parents. B) A monohybrid cross produces a single progeny, whereas a dihybrid cross produces two progeny. C) A dihybrid cross involves organisms that are heterozygous for two characters and a monohybrid only one.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
