In monohybrid inheritance, if an organism carries two different alleles for a particular gene, it is called:
A. Homozygous
B. Dominant
C. Heterozygous
D. Recessive

Correct Option: Answer is C
In monohybrid inheritance, an organism is considered heterozygous if it carries two different alleles for a particular gene.
Homozygous: An organism is homozygous if it carries two identical alleles for a particular gene. There are two types of homozygous individuals:
Homozygous dominant: If both alleles are dominant, the organism will express the dominant trait.
Homozygous recessive: If both alleles are recessive, the organism will express the recessive trait.
Heterozygous: An organism is heterozygous if it carries two different alleles for a particular gene. In this case, one allele may be dominant and the other recessive. If the dominant allele is completely dominant, the organism will typically express the dominant trait (although the recessive allele is still present). However, if the dominance is incomplete, the organism may exhibit a blend of the characteristics associated with both alleles.
