A person first crossed pure-bred pea plants having round-yellow seeds with pure-bred pea plants having wrinkled-green seeds and found that only A-B type of seeds were produced in the F1generation. When F1 generation pea plants having A-B type of seeds were cross-bred by self-pollination, then in addition to the original round-yellow and wrinkled-green seeds, two new varieties A-D and C-B type of seeds were also obtained.
(a) What are A-B type of seeds?
(b) State whether A and B are dominant traits or recessive traits.
(c) What are A-D type of seeds?
(d) What are C-B type of seeds?
(e) Out of A-B and A-D types of seeds, which one will be produced in
(i) minimum numbers, and
(ii) maximum numbers, in the F2 generation ?Lakhmir Singh & Manjit Kaur- Biology
A man with blood group A marries a woman with blood group 0 and their daughter has blood group 0. Is this information enough to tell you which of the traits - blood group A or 0 -is dominant? Why or why not?Lakhmir Singh & Manjit Kaur- Biology
Mendel first crossed pure-bred pea plants having round-yellow seeds with pure-bred pea plants having wrinkled-green seeds and found that only round-yellow seeds were produced in the F1 generation. When F1 generation pea plants having round-yellow seeds were cross-bred by self-pollination, then peas having round � yellow seeds, round green seeds, wrinkled-yellow seeds and wrinkled-green seeds were produced. Mendel collected a total of 2160 seeds.
(a)What will be the number of?
(i) Round green seeds
(ii) Wrinkled green seeds
(iii) Round yellow seeds, and
(iv) Wrinkled-yellow seeds
(b) Which 'ratio' as established by Mendel have you made use of in answering the part (a) above?Lakhmir Singh & Manjit Kaur- Biology
A couple with a newborn baby is troubled that the child does not resemble either of them. Suspecting that a mix-up occurred at the hospital, they check the blood type of the infant. It is type 0. Because the father is type A and the mother type B, they conclude that a mix-up has definitely occurred. Are they correct? Give reason for your answerLakhmir Singh & Manjit Kaur- Biology
