    guys what do you think the answer is, for does of you that do science degree (genetics and evolution module)

    The following two questions both concern the fictional disease Gargamel syndrome. Gargamel syndrome (gene symbol G/g) is an autosomal dominant gene disorder involving restricted growth and heart defects. It is known to have 100% penetrance. What does ‘100% penetrance’ mean in this context?

    (a) A patient with Gargamel syndrome has a 100% chance of passing it on to their offspring
    (b) If an individual has Gargamel syndrome, both of their parents must be carriers
    (c) 100% of individuals with the G/g genotype will suffer from the disease
    (d) 100% of all cases of Gargamel syndrome are due to new mutations
    (e) 100% of the variation in disease severity is due to environmental factors
