In Hardy-Weinberg equation, the frequency of heterozygous individuals is represented by

  • Option 1)

    p2

  • Option 2)

    2pq

  • Option 3)

    pq

  • Option 4)

    q2

As we discussed in

The Hardy-Weinberg formulas -

This formula allows detecting  frequencies that change from generation thus allowing a simplified method of determining that evolution is occurring.

- wherein

In a population at equilibrium for a locus of two alleles D and d having frequencies p and q respectively, the genotype frequencies are: 

DD=p2,

Dd= 2 pq,

dd= q2 

and p+q =1

p2+2 pq +q= 1

 

 


Option 1)

p2

This option is incorrect.

Option 2)

2pq

This option is correct.

Option 3)

pq

This option is incorrect.

Option 4)

q2

This option is incorrect.
