Before attempting this Genetics Practice Problems few tips:

  1. There are 21 Genetics questions in this MCQ quiz. Attempt all genetics MCQ (it’s totally worth it). Don’t do it in final CSIR NET JRF EXAM, as there you will have more freedom of choice for quetions and limited time.
  2. Give each question 4 minutes (Except last quetion), some of the genetics questions are too short it takes less than a minute to read genetics MCQ twice (invest your time in quetion once you understand the soul of the question you will win half of your battle there itself) and you don’t need to come back again after reading options which may drive you in state of confusion.
  3. Don’t Skip genetics practice problems without answering it, as it will test not just your knowledge but also your mental toughness there will be something in exam which you haven’t study but just logically by elimination method you can solve this kind of questions which will boost your confidence and understanding of exam pattern.
  4. Last but not the least, attempt Genetics Practice Problems Quiz with full attention without multitasking and any distraction. (If you can’t do it now then don’t attempt it Now, complete your work and then come back, believe me, the genetics quiz wouldn’t go anywhere).

Now what are you waiting for ??? Let’s start the Quiz :

Genetics MCQ Quiz for CSIR NET JRF Aspirant by Sachin’sBiology

1 / 21

A cross is made between two plants with white flowers. All the F1 progeny had red coloured flower. This is because… ( JUNE 2013)

2 / 21

4 different mutant lines showing similar phenotype where identified from a genetic screen. When genetic process among these mutants where carried out, the first mutant was found to complement the second, third and fourth mutant lines. However no other complementation groups do the 4 mutant lines belongs to?

A recessive inherited disease is expressed only in individuals of blood group O and not expressed in blood group A, B or AB. Alleles controlling the disease and blood group are independently inherited. Normal woman with blood group A and her normal husband with blood group B already had a child with disease. The woman is pregnant for second time. What is the probability that second child will also have disease. ( JUNE 2017)

Mendel crossed tall pea plants with dwarf once. The F1 plants where all tall. When these F1 plants were selfed to produce F2 generation, he got a 3:1 tall to draw ratio in the offspring. What is the probability that out of three plants of F2 generation picked up at random 2 would be dwarf and 1 would be tall ?

18 / 21

Upon studying a considerable number of different crosses in Drosophila, Morgan reaches the conclusion that all genes of this fly were clustered into 4 link groups corresponding to the four pairs of chromosomes. Further studies revealed that linkage is not absolute and it is broken frequently. It is broken in Prophase by a process called…

19 / 21

Two mutants of Drosophila melanogaster, one showing light red eye colour and the other showing dark brown eye colour, were crossed. In F1 all flies showed normal red eye colour. This indicated that the two locations are …
