Sickle-cell anemia is a genetic disorder of the blood in
which the shape of red blood cells is distorted,
resulting in a variety of health problems. The allele for
normal blood cell production (H) is dominant to the
allele for sickle cell Daily
production
(h).
double
If one parent has sickle-cell anemia and the other
parent is a carrier, what is the probability that their
child will have sickle-cell anemia?
Parents: Hh x hh
50% hh (sickle cell anemia)
50% Hh (carrier)
In humans, the allele for brown eyes
(B) is dominant to the allele for blue
eyes (b). What is the probability that
two heterozygous brown-eyed
parents will have a child with blue
eyes?
A. 50% B. 0% C. 75% D. 25%
D. 25%
In a particular type of cat, coat color follows the
dominant/recessive pattern of inheritance. The
allele for a brown coat (B) is dominant to the
allele for a white coat (b).
A cross between two white-coated cats would
result in...
A. white-coated kittens or brown-coated kittens.
B. white-coated kittens only.
C. brown-coated kittens only.
D. white-coated kittens with brown spots.
B. White Kittens only
In fruit flies, the allele for white eyes (W) is dominant
to the allele for red eyes (w). Two heterozygous fruit
flies are crossed, resulting in many offspring.
Which of the following would best describe the
population of offspring?
A. All of the offspring population is white-eyed.
B. The majority of the offspring population is whiteeyed.
C. The majority of the offspring population is red-eyed.
D. About half of the offspring population is red-eyed,
and the other half of the population is white-eyed.
B. The majority of the offspring
population will be white eyed.

different alleles for a trait is said
to be __________ for that trait.

B. 50%
D. 100%
B. 50%
Huntington's disease is a genetic disorder that can result in
memory loss and abnormal body movements. Huntington's
disease results from a defective gene (H) that is dominant
to the allele that produces normal function (h). This means
that...
I.if someone is heterozygous for Huntington's disease, then
he/she will be a carrier but will not have the disease.
II.if a child has Huntington's disease, then at least one of
his/her parents has the disease.
III.if two parents do not have Huntington's disease, then
their children will not have the disease.
A. I, II, and III
B. II and III only
C. II only
D. I and II only
B. II and III only

heterozygous or homozygous
offspring?

C. is stored within the mitochondria of
cells.
D. is passed from the offspring to the
parent.
B. Is held in genetic material
called DNA
A molecule of DNA is "packaged" and
carried by a larger molecule called a
__________.
A. vacuole B. chromosome
C. gamete D. diploid
B. chromosome

C. I and III only D. I, II, and III
D. I, II, and III
A widow's peak is a V-shaped area of the
hairline in the center of the forehead. The
allele for having a widow's peak is
