1. A rare autosomal recessive disease has a prevalence of 1 in 10,000 in a population. Assuming the population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, what is the frequency of carriers for this disease in the population? 

Question 1 of 5

2. In a population in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, 16% of individuals manifest the recessive phenotype of a certain genetic trait. What percentage of the population are heterozygous carriers of the trait?
