    The changed protein connects differently, but its function doesn’t change.

    The changed protein connects differently, so its function changes.

    Q.

    Mosquitoes can have bigger or smaller body sizes. Two parents that have medium-sized bodies have offspring. One of their offspring has a small body, and one has a large body. How did the offspring end up with traits that are different from the traits of their parents? How did the gene combinations result in these traits?

    answer choices

    The mosquitoes have different traits because they have different proteins for the body size feature in their cells. Differences in the structure of these protein molecules affect how they interact with other protein molecules, and this results in their different body sizes. I don’t know how gene combinations are involved.

    The mosquitoes have different traits because they have different proteins for the body size feature in their cells. Differences in the structure of these protein molecules affect how they interact with other protein molecules. A gene provides instructions for making a protein, so mosquitoes with different genes will have different proteins in their cells that result in small, medium, or large body sizes.

    The mosquitoes have different traits because they have different proteins for the body size feature in their cells. Differences in the structure of protein molecules affect how they interact with other protein molecules. A gene version provides instructions for making a specific protein, so mosquitoes with different combinations of gene versions will have different proteins in their cells that result in small, medium, or large body sizes. Each parent randomly passes on one of its two copies of a gene for a feature, which is why each mosquito offspring can have a different combination of gene versions even though they have the same parents.
