Expert Answer

Step 1

The question asks to determine the frequency of the F allele after 1000’s generations from the following given options.

  1. It will remain the same as in the initial population
  2. it will increase until it becomes fixed (a frequency of 1.0)
  3. it will be lost from the population totally (frequency of 0.0)
  4. it will approach a frequency of 1.0 but never quite reach that level.
  5. There is not enough information to answer this question.
Step 2

Allele frequency is also known as gene frequency. It can be defined as the relative frequency of an allele at a specific locus in a population. It is stated as a percentage or fraction.

Step 3

The correct option is (5) There is not enough information to answer this question. The data about the F allele is missing in the question. Allele frequency can vary with period of time within a single population, and normally change between populations. The most essential factors that affects the allele frequencies are mutation, migration (gene flow), genetic isolation, artificial se...
