Since, the evolution is of theFile Size: KB.

To determine: The frequencies of p and q that result in the greatest proportion of heterozygotes in a population using table given in the book. Introduction: The allele frequency refers to number of times an allele occurs at a specific locus within a population. It can be represented as percentage or in fraction. The allele frequency is indicative of variation at a particular locus. Evolution: Acquired and inherited traits, Speciation, Evolution and classification, Evolution by stages, Human evolution. Evolution: It is the sequence, of gradual, irreversible changes which took place in the primitive organisms over millions of years to form new present-day species. Variations that resulted in formation of new species.
