Yes having 6 fingers on your hand is a dominant trait. Most people who have this trait get the extra finger cut off after birth. There is a small group in the world where the people there have 6 fingers.

Why do recessive trail are more common in some cases?

They're not necessarily, but they can be. When a recessive trait is more common, it likely because it was advantageous to have that trait so the species evolved to have more of it in the gene pool. Also, since dominant traits are expressed over recessive traits, natural selection has more of an effect on them.

Information on hand clasping genetic traits?

Well there are some genetic traits controlled by a couple of alleles (hand calsping, tongue rolling, ear lobe attachment, etc.). and there are other controlled by many alleles (as hair color, eye color, skin color, height, etc.). Hand clasping is one trait that, so far as I know, some people believe it is controlled by just one pair of allels other people think it is controlled by many of them. I prefer to believe hand clasping just has 2 alleles. Considering this, we can say that one of this 2 alleles is Dominant and another recessive, as usually, however there are some cases when both alleles are dominant. -What do I mean by dominant and recessive? Well, this means that if both are in the same locus for that genetic trait (or gene, it is the same) the dominant will be the one that will expressed in the person carrying these alleles for this gene (or genetic trait, it is the same =P). So in the cae of hand clasping, if you join the fingers of your hand (I do not how to explin it exactly), you should see wheter your right or your left thumb is up. If your left thumb is above your right that is the dominant trait expressing. And if your right thumb is above , well you have the reccesive allele expressing. I hope I had contribute. =) Giorgio.
