1. Determine the ultimate effect in an XY human with its SRY gene mutated?
2. In humans, the allele for brown eye (B) is dominant to blue (b) eye color. If two heterozygous parents produce children, what is the probability that:
a. The first child has brown eyes, and the next two children have blue eyes?
b. If the couple above eventually produces a total of six children, what is the probability that three of them will be boys with brown eyes, and three of them girls with blue eyes?
3. In a paternity dispute, a type AB woman claimed that one of the four men was the father of her type A child. Which of the following men could be the father of the child on the basis of the evidence below? Give your reasoning.
Man #1 = type A
Man #2 = type B
Man #3 = type O
Man #4 = type AB
4. Several mating were made among all-white cats. The progent from these mating showed the following phenotypic frequency:
All-white cats = 12/16
Black cats = 3/16
Gray cats = 1/16

c. egg and sperm genetic recombination from distinct individuals
d. egg and sperm recombination from an individual
8. A female contains an extra X chromosome, resulting from nondisjunction. When this gamete is fertilized with normal sperm, it would result in an individual of a genotype
d. all of the above
e. only a and b
