Question

Mendel believed that the characteristics of pea plants are determined by the:

  1. Inheritance of factors from both parents.

  2. Inheritance of factors from a single parent.

  3. Relative health of the parent plants during pollination.

  4. None of the above.

hintHint:

Inheritance of factors from both parents determine the characters of a pea plant.

The correct answer is:

Inheritance of factors from both parents.


    • During gamete  formation, the pairs of alleles segregate from each other and so each gamete receives only one of the alleles
    • Fertilization leads to the combining of the gametes from both the parents therefore bringing one allele from each parent together in the daughter cell.
    • Thus the character of an organism is determined by both the parents.

    How is incomplete dominance and co-dominance different from a normal Mendelian cross?

    incomplete dominance, only one allele in the genotype is seen in the phenotype.
    In co-dominance, both alleles in the genotype are seen in the phenotype.
