Why might one trait be more popular than others in a particular population?
because there are two types of genotype the dominant and the recessive meaning that the dominant is the gene that is going to take over and eventually become a trait, and for the rececive genotype to become a trait you can not have a dominant because it will take over dominate the rececive and become the trait.
Is it possible for an offspring to have a phenotype that neither the father nor the mother has? Explain your answer.
Yes because each person has 46 chromosomes 23 from the mother and 23 from the father and if the mother gets the blue eye DNA and she also gets the brown eye DNA the brown is dominant and she will have brown eyes and if the father is the same case both have brown eyes but they also have the blue eye chromosome so if they have a baby and the baby has blue eyes is that the baby got the blue eye gene.
