problem 2: The inheritance of short wings in the Drosophila fruit flies is an x-linked, recessive trait. Which would most probable outcome if a short-winged female mates with the long-winged male?
a) All offspring will be short-winged.
b) All females will be long-winged and all the males will be short-winged.
c) All females will be short-winged and all the males will be long-winged.
d) Half of males and females will be short-winged and half will be long-winged.
problem 3: Illustrate the step in the method of producing the transgenic bacteria?

problem 5: The large population of cockroaches was sprayed with an insecticide. A few of the cockroaches survived and produced a population of cockroaches which was resistant to this spray. What can best be inferred from this illustration?
a) A species will adapt no matter what the environment.
b) The environment has no consequence on the survival of an organism.
c) Insecticides cause mutations which are passed on to the next generation.
d) Individuals with positive variations survive and reproduce.
