  4. What factors other than your child's genetic profile determine how successful the child will be in his or her career? Explain your answer.

  5. Suppose your child has a high number of dominant alleles for math ability. Does this mean your child will be a genius at math? Why or why not? What if your child has a low number of dominant alleles for math? Does this mean your child will never be able to add? Why or why not?
