Both a and d Textbook Reference: 10.1 What Are the Mendelian Laws of Inheritance? pp. 208–209 7. If Mendel had performed experiments on cattle rather than on peas, the patterns of inheritance would not have been easily detectable, because cattle a. reproduce asexually. b. have small numbers of offspring. c. do not have observable phenotypes. d. do not have genotypes. e. do not have autosomes. Textbook Reference: 10.1 What Are the Mendelian Laws of Inheritance? pp. 208–209 8.
