Q2. Let’s assume that colour in sea stars is controlled by one gene with two alleles: R and r. The alleles for this gene illustrate incomplete dominance, so there are three colours of sea stars: red (RR), pink (Rr) and white (rr). In our population there are 300 red sea stars, 200 pink sea stars and 500 White Sea stars. How numerous total alleles for sea star colour are in this population?
