Question

Mendel's concept of segregation implies that the two members of an allelic pair of genes 


A
Are distributed to separate gametes
loader
B
May contaminate one another

C
Are segregated in pairs
loader
D
Are linked

Solution

The correct option is A Are distributed to separate gametes
  • Segregation literally means separation. In Mendelian genetics, in a given plant or animal each character is governed by two alleles, one coming from the father and one coming from the mother.
  •  At the time of gamete formation both the alleles, of each gene, separate from each other and go to separate gametes. 
  • Thus, each gamete will be having only one allele from each pair of the allele, e.g., for tallness if we denote two alleles in a plant as Tt then that plant can form two possible gametes one having T and the other having t allele.
