Ans:
The Z scores here represent the LOD score that is the base 10 log of the ratio of the likelihoods of recombination and linkage.
A Z score of greater than or equal to 3 signifies the strong linkage, that of less than or equal to -2 indicates non-linkage, or recombination and the in-between values indicate insufficient data.
Hence,
a. Marker C and D are significantly linked to the trait allele anywhere within 0≤∪≤0.2. (See red boxes above)....
