b) The Characteristics that showed up very seldom were:3 eyes, 2 body segments, blue legs, 1 antenna, a straight tail and 1 green hump.
c) The following traits were found to be homozygous dominant:EE ( Eye number - 2 eyes)CC (Curly Tail)VV (Red eyes)d) The following traits were found to be heterozygous:Aa (Antenna number: 2 antennas)Mm (# of Humps - 2 green humps)Nn (Leg number - six legs)Ll (blue legs)e) The following traits were found to be homozygous recessive:dd (2 body segments)tt (white tail)ii (o group blood type)f) Is your ReeBop a Purebred? Why or why not?No, our reebop Baljit is not a purebred. This is because there are many genotypes involved in making the reebop which means that the results will vary. Since most of the characteristics were heterozygous, this results in a creature that will not be a purebread as for different traits can form. Also the mating was very random which could also increase the chance of the reebop not being a purebreed.
g) What is the probability of your ReeBops genotype occurring?:Genotypic TraitProbability RatioAa1/3BoBo1/3EE1/3VV1/3dd1/3Mm1/3CC1/3Ll1/3tt1/3xy1/2Nn1/3ii1/6FfGgHH1/17Therefore, the probability would be 1/4015332.
