Part-A Maximum Marks: 50
1. i) How is co-dominance different from incomplete dominance?
ii) Explain the phenomenon of masking the expression of gene by
another in epitasis.
2. i) In Drosophila, the recessive, sex-linked genes abnormal eyes facet
(fa) and singed bristles (sn) show 18 percent recombination.
a) If a singed male is crossed to a
female, what phenotypes
are expected in the F1?
b) If the F1 males and females are inbred what phenotypic
proportions would be expected to occur in F2 males and
ii) Two recessive genes ds and mp are present in corn. These are linked
and are 20 map units apart. From the cross:
ds mp ds
What percentage of the progeny would be expected to be both ds and
mp in the phenotype?

populations contribute to isolation process.
d) Discuss the role played by courtship behavior and scents in the
