In most Hymenoptera, all fertilized eggs develop into diploid females and all unfertilized eggs into haploid males-a condition known as haplodiploidy. Workers in these colonies share half the alleles they received from their mother, but share all of the alleles they received from their haploid father. What is the average number of alleles shared among sisters? Explain.
