    In birds, sex is determined by a ZW chromosome scheme. Males are ZZ and females are ZW. A recessive lethal allele that causes death of the embryo is sometimes present on the Z chromosome in pigeons. What would be the sex ratio in the offspring of a cross between a male that is heterozygous for the lethal allele and a normal female?




    A. 4:3 male to female B. 1:2 male to female C. 1:1 male to female D. 3:1 male to female E. 2:1 male to female
    E. 2:1 male to female
