Question

Mendel’s idea that the pair of alleles of each parent separate and only one allele from each parent is passed to an offspring is explained by:

  1. Law of dominance
  2. Law of segregation
  3. Law of independent assortment
  4. Hybridization

hintHint:

Law of segregation explains that the pair of alleles of each parent separate and only one allele from each parent is passed to an offspring.

The correct answer is: Law of segregation


    • During gamete formation only half of the chromosomes pass onto each daughter cell.
    • Similarly only one of the two alleles from a pair of alleles is transferred to a gamete.
    • This is called the law of segregation which is the second law of inheritance.
