After crossing two pure-breeding plants ( a red-flowering plant with aves and a blue-flowering plant with round leaves ), you self-pollinate the F 1 generation and observe the following results in the F 2 generation: CLARIFY WHAT SYMBOLS YOUÕRE Offspring: USING (what stands for what): Round leaves, blue flowers: 113 plants Round leaves, red flowers: 26 plants Oval leaves, blue flowers: 323 plants Oval leaves, red flowers: 98 plants a.
