(1) occur in nucleus

(2) both segregate at the time of gamete formation leading to transmittance of complete pair to a gamete.

(3) Independent pairs( gene) or pair of chromosomes segregate independently of each other or of other pair.

Linkage was described by Morgan in Drosophila. Which of the following combinations are correct?

(i) He hybridised yellow bodied, white-eyed females to brown-bodied, red eyed males and then intercrossed their F1

(ii) The ratio of F2 generation is same as that of 9:3:3:1 in this cross.

(iii) The parental combinations are observed more than recombinants.

(iv) According to Morgan Linkage was observed due to chemical association of genes.

(v) All the genes present on same chromosomes have same efficiency to link.

(1) (ii), (iv), (v)

(2) (i), (iii)

(3) (i), (iii), (v)

(4) (i) and (iv)

Difficulty Level:


Mendel’s success was largely due to his choice of the garden pea plant for his experiments. The advantages of using this plant included:

I. Presence of easily observable contrasting traits for many characters.
II. It was possible to control pollination [and hence mating] between different pea plants.
III. A large number of seeds could be produced and statistical analysis was therefore more accurate.
IV. A long generation time means expression of all traits completely.
V. Many observable traits were controlled by single genes.

1. Only I, II and III
2. Only I, II and V
3. Only I, II, III and V
4. Only II, III, IV and V
