The Rh factor is an antigen expressed on red blood cells and is controlled by a single gene. The dominant allele RH causes a person to be Rh positive, and the recessive allele is represented as rh. Assume that a population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium and 16 individuals out of 100 are Rh negative. What are the allele frequencies of RH and rh in this population?
A. the allele frequency of RH is 0.80, and the allele frequency of rh is 0.20
B. the allele frequency of RH is 0.50 and the allele frequency of rh is 0.50
C. The allele frequency of RH is 0.60, and the allele frequency of rh is 0.40
D. The allele frequency of RH is 0.84 and the allele frequency of rh is 0.16
