Ch. 3 HW answer key MCQs: 1) B 2) C 3) A 4) B 5) D 6) A 7) B T/ F: 1) T 2) F 3) F 4) T 5) T Short questions: 1) 9:3:3:1 2) Segregation is the separation of alleles during meiosis, while independent assortment states that a member of one gene pair has an equal and independent opportunity of segregating with either member of another gene pair. 3) When the probability value is less than 0.05 4) 3:1 5) This occurs in a cross involving doubly heterozygous individuals crossed to fully recessive individuals. The genes involved assort independently of each other. 6) No, when the p value is < 0.05, null hypothesis is rejected. 7) ¼ X ½ = 1/8 8) No. In mating involving heterozygotes, three genotypic classes are expected in the offspring: fully dominant, fully recessive, and heterozygotes. 9) Complete dominance, independent assortment, no gene interaction 10) The likelihood of rejecting the null hypothesis increases.
