Answer :

If a diploid organism is heterozygous for 4 loci the different types of gametes that can be produced can be calculated by the formula 2n, where “n” is the number of loci. Thus,

n = 4, therefore the number of gametes produced are 2n = 24 = 16 types.


Therefore a diploid organism is heterozygous for 4 loci produces 16 different types of gametes.
