Answer: C. Alleles.

Explanation: Alleles are one or more alternative forms of a particular genetic material that are usually present in a specific position on a chromosome.

Dominant factors are phenotypically expressed in an individual by the most prominent gene.

Recessive factors are suppressed by the presence of the dominant genes in an individual.
