Answers (1)


Statement i) is incorrect because two phenotypes are simultaneously expressed in codominance. In incomplete dominance both the alleles are expressed partially. So it is called partial dominance. In this process neither of the genes is completely dominant over the other allele. It results in a mixed combination.

Statement ii) is correct because in incomplete dominance both the genes at a gene locus are partially expressed.That is why it results in a mixed phenotype.

Option 2 is the correct answer.
