I had a biology test, and there was a EXCEPT question(all the following are 
possible EXCEPT). I do not exactly remember the question but one of the answer 
choices was "A recessive allele can become a dominant allele". I picked that 
choice, because I think that a recessive allele can not become a dominant one, 
but my teacher picked "female offsprings more tend to carry the trait than 
males do".
