5. The diagram to the right shows a cellular process that occurs in organisms.
This process is known as A meiosis. B mitosis. C endocytosis. D phagocytosis.
6. Which of the following statements correctly describes meiosis?
A Cells divide only once during meiosis.
B Meiosis does not occur in reproductive cells.
C The cells produced at the end of meiosis are genetically identical to the parent cell.
D The cells produced at the end of meiosis contain half the number of chromosomes as the parent cell.
7. Which of the following best describes meiosis?
A It is carried out in all tissues that require cell replacement.
B It occurs only in cells in the reproductive structures of the organism.
C It happens in all tissues except the brain and spinal cord.
D It is the first stage of mitosis.

a female is
A 25%. B 50% C 75%
D 90%.
9. When sperm and egg join together in fertilization it forms what is called a Zygote.
1. What does heterozygous mean? Different alleles
What does homozygous mean? Two of the same alleles, either 2 recessive or 2 dominant
2. What is the law of segregation? Homologous chromosomes will separate into different sperm or egg at the
end of meiosis.
3. What is the law of independent assortment? Homologous pairs separate randomly
4. In flowers, blue flower petals are dominant to red flower petals.
What are the possible phenotypes for the following flowers with these genotypes?
BB Blue Bb Blue bb____Red
5. What is the phenotype of a heterozygous person if T is tall and t is short? Tall
6. In humans, big ears are dominant to small ears. B=_Big ears
What are the genotypes for a person with big ears? BB,Bb
What is the genotype for a person with small ears? bb
b=Small ears
7. In dogs, short hair (H) is dominant to long hair (h). If a heterozygous short hair dog is crossed with a long
hair dog, what percentage of the offspring will have long hair. Hhx hh = 50% chance
8. In certain breeds of dogs, deafness is due to a recessive allele (d) of a particular gene, and normal hearing is
due to its dominant allele (D). What percentage of the offspring of a normal heterozygous (Dd) dog and a deaf
dog (dd) would be expected to have normal hearing? A 0% B 25% C 50% D 100%
9. In fruit flies, the gene for red eyes (R) is dominant and the gene for sepia eyes (r) is recessive. What are the
possible combinations of genes in the offspring of two red-eyed heterozygous flies (Rr)? Do a punnett square
for Rr x Rr
A RR only B rr only C Rr and rr only D RR, Rr, and rr only
10. If a human baby boy inherits a recessive allele from his mother, in which circumstance would he most
likely show the trait coded for by the recessive allele?
A The baby inherits the dominant allele from his father.
B The allele is on an autosomal chromosome and the baby is a twin.
C The allele is on the X chromosome. D The allele is on the Y chromosome.
