Name: ___________________________ For questions 1-2, flower color in petunias is controlled by three independently-assorting genes (A, B, C), each with a dominant and recessive allele. The three genes interact in the following fashion to determine color: flower color symbol genotypes producing this color white W aaB_C_, aaB_cc, aabbC_, aabbcc yellow Y A_bbC_, A_bbcc red R A_B_cc purple P A_B_C_ 1. A multiply-homozygous purple petunia is crossed with a multiply-homozygous recessive white petunia and 11 produced all purple F offspring. What phenotypic ratio (W : Y : R : P) is expected if the F plants are self- 2 fertilized to produce an F generation? (Hint: The fork-line method would be much more time-efficient versus a HUGE Punnet square. ..) a. 9 : 3 : 3 : 1 b. 1 : 1 : 1 : 1 c. 16 : 12 : 9 : 27 d. 1 : 12 : 24 : 27 e. none of the above (a-d) is correct. 2. Which one of the following crosses will produce the largest number of offspring genotypes ? a. AaBbCc X aabbcc b. AaBbCC X aaBBcc c. AaBbCc X AaBbCc d. AABBCC X aabbcc e. AAbbCC X aaBBcc.
