A heterozygous individual has ______ for a trait being studied.

  1. a. the same allele on both homologous chromosomes
  2. b. two different alleles of a gene
  3. c. a haploid condition, in genetic terms

Summary Introduction

Concept introduction: The pair of chromosome where one of the pair is of maternal source and the other is of paternal source that has genes in the same loci with variable alleles of the gene is called as homologous chromosomes. Allele is the modification of the gene. Alleles are of two types namely dominant and recessive.

Explanation of Solution

Reasons for correct statement:

Homozygous individuals have same alleles on the gene loci either dominant homozygous or recessive homozygous. Heterozygous individuals have one dominant allele and one recessive allele. Thus, two different types of alleles of the same gene are present in the gene loci.

Option b. is given as “two different alleles of a gene”

As heterozygous individuals possess different alleles of the same gene for the trait expressed, option b. is correct.

Reasons for the incorrect statements:

Option a...
