Hi can you please check my work.

A mutation that occurs in a diploid cell can be inherited only if

A) the mutated allele is recessive.
B) the mutated allele is dominant.
C) the mutation occurs in a cell that produces gametes.
D) the same mutation also occurs on the homologous chromosome.
--I think the answer is C.

Mendel’s laws were able to predict accurately the pattern of inheritance for situations in which
A) alleles are affected by their environment.
B) alleles show complete dominance.
C) alleles of one gene alter the effect of a different gene.
D) a given character is determined by more than one gene.

-I'm pretty sure the answer is B.

Thank you!
