What fraction of offspring of the cross AaBb × AaBb is homozygous for all the dominant alleles, assuming that they are on different chromosomes? a. 1 /4 b. 1 /8 c. 1 /16 d. 1 /32 e. 1 /64 2. What fraction of the offspring of the cross shown in Question 1 would show the dominant phenotypes for both genes? a. 9 /16 b. 3 /16 c. 6 /16 d. 12 /16 e. 1 /3 3. The fact that a trait like height in humans varies over a wide range of values is due to a. penetrance. b. expressivity. c. multiple alleles and the environmental influences on the expression of these genes. d. epistasis. e. discrete and qualitative genomic variation. 4.
