    D

    Explanation:

    p2 + 2pq + q2 = 1 and p + q = 1

    p = frequency of the dominant allele in the population

    q = frequency of the recessive allele in the population

    p2 = percentage of homozygous dominant individuals

    q2 = percentage of homozygous recessive individuals

    2pq = percentage of heterozygous individuals
