When Morgan hybridised yellow-bodied, white-eyed females to brown-bodied, red-eyed males and intercrossed their F1 progeny, the F2 ratio deviated very significantly from the 9:3:3:1 ratio. this can be attributed to the fact that:

(1) The genes are located on X and Y chromosomes

(2) Fruit fly has abnormal chromosomes

(3) The genes are located on the X chromosome

(4) The genes exhibit incomplete dominance

What is incorrect for Hemophilia?

1. In this disease, a single protein that is a part of the cascade of proteins involved in the clotting of blood is affected.

2. In an affected indlvidual a simple cut will result in non-stop bleeding.

3. The heterozygous female (carrier) for haemophilia may transmit the disease to sons.

4. The possibility of a female becoming a haemophilic is extremely rare because mother of such a female has to be hemophilic and the father should be a carrier.
