  • $100 Answer from H2 What is a captial letter
  • $200 Question from H2 Using the letter “K”, what is The genotype of a heterozygous Individual?
  • $200 Answer from H2 Hetero means different… so Kk
  • $300 Question from H2 When the color orange (O) Is dominant in flowers, the Genotype of green flowers would be
  • $300 Answer from H2
  • $400 Question from H2 When there is incomplete Dominance, what is happening?
  • $400 Answer from H2 Each allele has it’s own degree Of influence. For example: crossing red and white Flowers to get pink
  • $500 Question from H2 What is co-dominance
  • $500 Answer from H2 Both traits are equally expressed For example: a persons blood type (A, B, AB, O) is determined by the Presence of multiple alleles. A person With AB blood exhibits co-dominance
