B) A gene contains hundreds of chromosomes which are composed of protein.
C) A chromosome contains hundreds of genes which are composed of protein.
D) A gene contains hundreds of chromosomes which are composed of DNA.

Consider the following information.

In fruit flies, dominant gene "R" produces red eyes and recessive gene "r" produces white eyes. Also, the R and r alleles are sex-linked (they are part of the X chromosome but not the Y chromosome or the autosomes). Pick the correct mating described by the following questions.
A. Rr x R- mating
B. RR x r- mating
C. rr x R- mating
D. Rr x r- mating
E. rr x r- mating

All the female offspring will have red eyes, but half the male offspring will have red eyes and half will have white eyes

Question 1.
A. You have 23 pairs of chromosomes. Within those chromosomes are the various genes that encode for all the necessary proteins for your body. Those genes are made up of DNA.

Question 2.
C. The nitrogen containing bases (ATP, GTP, CTP, TTP) are nucleoitdes which code for an ...
