Concept

# Problem: A population of cats is in Hardy Weinberg equilibrium for the S locus which causes patches of white fur. There are two alleles S and s. The frequency of the S allele is 0.2 and the frequency of the s allele is 0.8. What is the expected frequency of Ss cats in the population?a. 1.0     b. 0.2     c. 0.32d. 0.16      e. 0.8
