A: 1 : 0


4. Mendelian recombination of characters is due to
A: Random assortment

A: 4


6. If one gene influences many phenotypic traits, the phenomenon is called
     1) Polygenetic inheritance           2) Pleiotropy
     3) Multi factorial inheritance       4) Quantitative inheritance
A: 2 (Pleiotropy)


7. Phenylketonuria is an example for
A: Pleiotropy


8. Ratio of long winged (dominant) and vestigial winged (recessive) Drosophila, when a pure long winged Drosophila and a pure vestigial winged Drosophila are crossed is
A: 1 : 0


9. If a gene has four alleles, number of genotypes expected
A: 10


10. If father has 'O' group and mother has 'A' group (homozygous), the blood group(s) expected in their children.
A: A


11. The person with B blood group has
A: Antigen B on RBC and anti A antibodies in plasma.

A: B


13. Assertion (A): SNPs are more stable.

A: Both A & R are true. R is correct explanation for A.


14. Biologically, the marriage between these two is not advisable


15. Persons having AB blood group are universal receipients because
