Genes are NOT typically the only determinant of traits. Which of the following is the best explanation?
Genes only store information. Proteins determine traits
Environmental factors also influence how traits are expressed
Individuals can control and change what their traits are
Random chance is a major factor controlling many traits
Which of the following CANNOT be a reason identical twins have different fingerprints?
DNA mutation occurs in the zygote
DNA mutation occurs during embryonic development

Which inheritance pattern explains why men with red beards outnumber those with red hair?
Red beards are the result of a dominant allele
Incomplete dominance. For red beards, only one recessive allele is required
