Consider island C in 1980 with 546 adults. If the frequency of the black allele (f(y)) is 0.12, assume Hardy-Weinberg conditions and estimate the frequency of heterozygotes in this island population?


(A) 0.0<f(Yy)<0.2

(B) 0.2< f(Yy) <0.4

(C) 0.4< f(Yy) <0.6

(D) 0.6< f(Yy) <0.8

(E) 0.8< f(Yy) <1.0

I think the answer is B, but I'm not sure.
