Solution

Gene: A gene is a unit of inheritance that is transferred from the parent to the offspring. It controls the expression of a character. A gene is a linear piece of DNA present in the nucleus.

Alleles: Alleles are alternative forms of a single gene that lie on the same locus in homologous chromosomes.
