The frequency of occurrence of a disease is one in a million individuals. This disease results a from the homozygosity in a recessive allele. The population satisfies all the assumptions of the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. The frequency of Of the dominant allele and frequency of carriers of of the disease respectively are (a) 0.9 and 0.19 (b) 0.09 and 0.019 (c) 0.999 and 0.0019 (d) 0.009 and 0.00019
