RE: Small Things That Make You Smile Thread
Today I took an exam, and I think I managed to not completely fail, but that's not important. These things however...

On the exam was the following question:

Those most likely to pass on a lethal allele are:
A) Naturally selected
B) Lucky
C) Homozygous dominant
D) Homozygous recessive
E) Heterozygous


Also, on the bus ride home, I saw a big German Shepard carrying what appeared to be a half a brick in his mouth from around a construction site.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

D, right?

I was thinking E. If it was D wouldn't it be dead, and therefore not passing on its genes?

That was my logic.

I'm nowhere near being an expert, but I thought D, too. I just know a bit from a molecular biologist buddy a while back.

Don't we have any biologists here now I really want to know the answer.

Ghostexorcist studies paleoanthropology, so he's kind of like a biologist.

And I'm just sitting here being a first-year ethology student.

It's those *most likely*. Gotta be heterozygous.
