In sheep, white wool (B) is dominant to black wool (b). In 2005, a farmer with a
ock of sheep containing a few black sheep decided to prevent all black sheep from breeding in the future. White sheep in the
ock continuedto reproduce in that year and the years that followed.As a result of the farmer’s action it is reasonable to predict that
no black lambs were born in 2006 and beyond.
black lambs were born in 2006 but none in the following years.
the proportion of black lambs born in 2006 was the same as in previous years.
the proportion of black lambs born would decline gradually in the years following 2005.
