OBJECTIVE OF GENE FREQUENCIES

Four options are given at the end of each statement. You should encircle one option from them.

Which of the followings should be large for Hardy Weinberg theorem:

(a) Gene       (b) Population         (c) Migration          (d) Mutation
Which of the followings must not occur for Hardy Weinberg theorem:

(a) Gene (b) Population (c) Allele (d) Mutation Match neutral selection with one of the following:

(a) Gene flow (b) Genetic drift (c) Natural selection d) Mutation The change in gene frequencies by chance is called:

(a) Gene flow (b) Genetic drift      (c) Natural selection (d) Mutation

Genetic  a new colony is called:

k a) Gene flow (b) Launder effect (c) Natural selection (d) Mutation The selection which favors the intermediate against extremes is called:

(a) stabilizing(b) Disruptive          (c) Directional        (d) None

The natural selection in which individuals of the most commons phenotypes are at disadvantage is called:

a) stabilizing(h) Disruptive         (c) Directional        (d) None

  1. The occurrence of two or more distinct forms in a population without
    a range of phenotypes between them is:
    (a) Gene flow (b) Founder effect (c) Natural selection (d) Polymorphism
  2. The formation of new species is called:

(a) Gene flow (b) Genetic drift              (c) Speciation            (d) Mutation

  1. The speciation occurs when subpopulations become geographically isolated from one another is called:

(a) Sympatric (b) allopatric                   (c) Parapatric             (d) none

  1. The speciation occurs in demes is:

(a) Sympatric (b) Parapatric                 (c) Allopatric              (d) none

Ans:

1. (b) 2. (d) 3. (b) 4. (b) 5. (b) 6. (a) 7. (b) 8. (d) 9. (c) 10. (b)11.
