5. guanine / cytosine
6. translation / anticodon
7. operator / promoter
8. conjugation / transformation
9. RFLPs / Southern blot analysis
10.pleiotropy / polygenic inheritance

B. Short Answer/Short Essay Questions

Instructions: Answer each of the questions given below in your own words. Write in complete sentences where appropriate. A complete answer usually requires one to two sentences per mark, so a three-mark question would be answered in three to six sentences.
