Question description

This graph shows the change in allele frequency, p, over 100 generations of selection. At generation 0, p=0.1. The blue and green lines represent evolution in two different populations experiencing two different selective scenarios. Which statement best describes the difference between the blue and green scenarios?

a.

The population represented by the green line experienced genetic drift; the population represented by the blue line experienced natural selection

b.

The blue line shows heterozygote advantage; the green line shows heterozygote disadvantage

c.

Selection is stronger in the population represented by the blue line than in the population represented by the green line

d.

The blue line shows a stable equilibrium; the green line shows an unstable equilibrium

e.

The blue line demonstrates selection on a beneficial recessive allele; the green line demonstrates selection on a beneficial dominant allele

f.

A and B

g.

D and E

h.
