Question Genetics : Segregation & Translocation

Can anyone please explain these terms for me :

Adjacent segregation and Alternate segregation
Reciprocal translocation and Robertsonian translocation


Recently came across this question in kaplan Qbook, 1st test biochem Q-18, if someone has come across it and explain it in context to this question, it'll be really really helpful. But nevertheless, i dont get what these terms mean

Yes I have looked up the question. Very good. But difficult to explain without pictures. Kaplan genetics chapter 3 on cytogenetics have the pictures in page352. Look it up pls. Then listen to the vedio part of chapter 3 it's about 1 hr long. Hope this helps.

Yea, i'll do that, thanks. I dont have access to videos anymore, but i saw that in kaplan book, i'll read that once more and see if i get it. I was just hoping if someone could explain it to me in bit simplified terms so i get this concept just to be able to answer the question.
I suck at genetics. I ve read it, but i get so many questions wrong still

U are not alone. I do get them wrong too but after reading the explanation I see that I didn't get the actual understanding of the queston well. At times too u need to be a little careful and read the question with extra care and u would always get it.
