23/24. Shown below are the complentation test results involving 4 indepdendetly isolated lethal mutants in a

bacteriophage. Complentation was assayed by simultaneously infecting bacteria with two phage strains, each with a different mutation, neither of which could alone lyse the cells. In the table below, a "+" indicates the strains complentated each other and therefore lysed open the bacteria, A "0" indicates no complentation and therefore no cell lysis occurred.

                                                      1     2      3    4

Test pair     Results              1    0    +      0    0

1,2                    +                   2           0     +     +
