Detailed Solution for Test: Heredity And Variation 6 - From Past 28 Years Questions - Question 22

Down’s syndrome develops due to trisomy of chromosome number 21. In Turner’s syndrome, the effect appears due to fusion of a gamete without sex chromosome and a gamete with one X-chromosome (44 + X). Klinefelter individuals are phenotypically males. The defect appears due to fusion of egg having unreduced sex complement (A + X X) with a gamete carrying Y chromosome (44 + XXY). Gynandromorphism occur among Drosophila. In such individuals one half  of the body shows male characters and the other half shows female characters.

Detailed Solution for Test: Heredity And Variation 6 - From Past 28 Years Questions - Question 25

Inversion is a change in chromosomal architecture in which part of the chromosome gets inverted in its position so that the sequence of the genes in the inverted region is reversed. In deletion a segment of a chromosome breaks and is lost. Monosomy is a type of deletion involving deficiency of one chromosome (2n - 1). In reciprocal translocation there is a mutual exchange of segments between two non homologous chromosomes.
