In the Hardy-Weinberg equation, p + q = 1, p and q represent the frequency of alleles in a population of diploid organisms if:
a. Two or more alleles exist for that gene
b. Two or more genes are needed to express a trait
c. Only two alleles exist for that gene
d. The trait is polygenic
e. Only one allele exists for that gene
