Provide symbols to represent the genes and alleles

Question: In yeast, one haploid strain is unable to synthesize uracil but able to synthesize leucine, while another haploid strain is able to synthesize uracil but not leucine. You think that the two genes occurring on different chromosomes permit synthesis of uracil and leucine. Your goal is to
determine if the two genes occur on two different chromosomes (not just one chromosome).

a. Provide symbols to represent the genes and alleles you predict determine the variation observed.
b. Predict the genotypes of the two haploid strains.
c. Briefly describe a procedure you could use to determine whether the two genes occur on different chromosomes.
d. What specific outcomes (observations) from the procedure you described in c would show that there are two genes occurring on two different chromosomes? On the same chromosome?
