Test: Heredity And Variation 5 - From Past 28 Years Questions - Question 1

A woman with two genes for haemophilia and a gene for colour blindness on one of the 'X' chromosomes marries a normal man. How will the progeny be

[1998]

Detailed Solution for Test: Heredity And Variation 5 - From Past 28 Years Questions - Question 1

Test: Heredity And Variation 5 - From Past 28 Years Questions - Question 2

Albinism is known to be due to an autosomal recessive mutation. The first child of a couple with normal skin pigmentation was an albino. What is the probability that their second child will also be an albino? [

1998]

Detailed Solution for Test: Heredity And Variation 5 - From Past 28 Years Questions - Question 2

A child will be albino only if it is homozygous for albinism genes (since albinism is a recessive character). As parents have normal skin, it means they are hetrozygous. As a result of cross between two heterozygous parents, 25% of the children will be homozygous recessive. The nature of the second child is not affected in any way by the nature of the first child because both are independent events.

Phenomenon of ‘ Industrial melanism ’ demonstrates

[1999]

Detailed Solution for Test: Heredity And Variation 5 - From Past 28 Years Questions - Question 10

During industrial revolution in England the frequency of melanic forms of species of Peppered Moth (Biston betularia)  increased in polluted areas. Generally the moths are light coloured. This change in colour is known as "Industrial melanism". The change was presumed to be a result of natural selection since the melanic moths better matched the blackened tree trunks where they rest during day.

Test: Heredity And Variation 5 - From Past 28 Years Questions - Question 11

One child is haemophilic (sex-linked trait), while its fraternal twin brother is normal. Which one of the following informations is most appropriate?

[1999]

Detailed Solution for Test: Heredity And Variation 5 - From Past 28 Years Questions - Question 11

The mother must have been a haemophilic carrier (XhX). One of  the twins would have inherited the normal X chromosome and the other would have received the X chromosome carrying the gene for haemophilia.

Detailed Solution for Test: Heredity And Variation 5 - From Past 28 Years Questions - Question 20

According to principle of dominance, out of the two factors of alleles representing different traits of a  character, only one expresses itself.  But when both express themselves it is codominance.

Ratio of complementary genes

[2001]

Detailed Solution for Test: Heredity And Variation 5 - From Past 28 Years Questions - Question 21
