Q1. A cross between two individuals results in a ratio of 9 : 3 : 3 : 1 for four possible phenotypes of progeny is called?

  1. Dihybrid cross
  2. Monohybrid cross
  3. Test cross
  4. None of these

Q2. The science of heredity is known as:

  1. Biology
  2. Embryology
  3. Genetics
  4. Biochemistry

Q3. A plant with two ‘small’ genes breeds with a plant with two ‘tall’ genes to produce:

  1. Small plants and tall plants in the ratio 1 : 3
  2. All small plants
  3. All tall plants
  4. Tall plants and small plants in the ratio 3 : 1

Q4. Which of the following may be used to obtain generation?

  1. Allowing flowers on a parent plant to be self-pollinated
  2. Allowing flowers on an plant to be self-pollinated
  3. Cross-pollinating plant with a parent plant
  4. Cross-pollinating two parent plants

Q5. A Mendelian experiment consisted of breeding tall pea plants bearing violet flowers with short pea plants bearing white flowers. The progeny all bore violet flowers, but almost half of them were short. This suggests that the genetic make-up of the tall parent can be depicted as

  • TTWW
  • TTww
  • TtWW
  • TtWw

Q6. What are genes? Where are they located in our body?

Q7. How do Mendel’s experiments show that traits may be dominant or recessive ?

Q8. A man with blood group A marries a woman with blood group O and their daughter has blood group O. Is this information enough to tell you which of the traits – blood group A or O – is dominant? Why or why not ?

Q9. A study found that children with light-coloured eyes are likely to have parents with light-coloured eyes. On this basis, can we say anything about whether the light eye colour trait is dominant or recessive ? Why or why not ?

Q10. Explain how sexual reproduction gives rise to more viable variations than asexual reproduction. How does this affect the evolution of those organisms that reproduce sexually ?

Q11. “The sex of a new born child is a matter of chance and none of the parents may be considered responsible for it”. Justify this statement.

Q12. Explain how equal genetic contribution of male and female parent is ensured in the progeny.

Q13. Give one example each of characters that are inherited and the ones that are acquired in humans. Mention the difference between inherited and the acquired characters.

Q14. In an experiment, tall pea plant (TT) is breed with dwarf pea plant (Tt). What will be the height of progeny .

Q15. Name the Mendel’s law of inheritance.
