It is true-breeding with respect to that allele. *d. Its parents had to be homozygous for that allele. e. It can pass that allele to its offspring. 2. Mendels laws describing the segregation of traits for a given character and the independent assortment of the traits for different characters is explained by _________________________. a. the epistatic interaction of genetic loci b. the difference in genetic penetrance of alleles for different characters *c. the behavior of homologous chromosomes during the first meiotic division d. the separation of chromatids during the second meiotic division e. recombination between the chromatids of homologous chromosomes 3. In pea plants, the allele for purple flower color is dominant and that for white flower color is recessive.
