Answer

To determine which populations are in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, we need to compare observed genotype frequencies with expected frequencies calculated under Hardy-Weinberg assumptions.

Solution

a

Identify the observed genotype frequencies in the population

b

Calculate the expected genotype frequencies using the Hardy-Weinberg equation: $p^2$ for the frequency of the homozygous dominant genotype, $2pq$ for the frequency of the heterozygous genotype, and $q^2$ for the frequency of the homozygous recessive genotype, where $p$ is the frequency of the dominant allele and $q$ is the frequency of the recessive allele

c

Compare the observed frequencies with the expected frequencies. If they are not significantly different, the population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium

Key Concept

Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium

Explanation

A population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium if the observed genotype frequencies match the expected frequencies and there is no significant difference between them. This implies that the population is not evolving at the particular locus being studied.
