Problem: Which of the following two organisms exhibit the highest degree of similarity between their genomes?A. two seeds from the same parent plantB. a cutting and the parent that it was taken fromC. a brother and a sisterD. twin brother and sister reared in the same houseE. brothers from a cousin marriage

FREE Expert Solution

The degree of similarity of genomes of individuals largely depend on the relationship of one another. This is due to the variation of genotypes that are being formed during the gamete formation of meiosis. That is why even children are not really identical in genome with their parents, and more like partial derivations of the parents' pooled genes.
