41. If the gene pool were at 99% mutation-A , then: A. A mutation causing females to construct higher nests would lead to more offspring B. A mutation causing females to construct lower nests would lead to more offspring C. A mutation causing females to construct higher nests would lead to more grand- offspring D. A mutation causing females to construct lower nests would lead to more grand- offspring E. Answers A & C are both correct 42.

43. The mutation that would eventually predominate in the gene pool is: 44. Assuming that the alligators reproduced exclusively by brother-sister mating , the mutation (of the choices listed) that would eventually predominate in the gene pool is: 45. The best gene transport machine (of the choices listed) would be the alligator phenotype that produced: A. 2 offspring and 16 grand-offspring B. 16 offspring and 2 grand-offspring C. 16 offspring and 16 grand-offspring D. A & C are both correct E. None of these answers is correct Use the following information for the next 5 questions (until you see a solid line): In some species of flies, a bacteria (Wolbachia) lives in the cytoplasm and is transmitted through the egg to sons, daughters and granddaughter, but never to grandsons because it is not transmitted via the sperm. This is the same transmission pattern as the mitochondria. The bacteria has evolved to improve several physiological functions for the fly. Another bacteria (Spiroplasma) has the same transmission properties as Wolbachia but it does not improve any physiological functions of the fly but instead kills all sons that do not transmit it, thereby increasing the survival of propagating daughters by reducing competition with their non- propagating brothers for limiting resources shared by the family of siblings. Recent studies indicate that son-killing by Spiroplasma can be suppressed by proteins coded by fly genes that have evolved to block the son-killing molecular pathway used by Spiroplasma.

    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.
