In garden peas, in a testcross with a parent with the genotype RRYy, what fraction of offspring will be round, and what fraction will be yellow? A. None will be round, and all will be yellow B. All will be round, and all will be yellow C. All will be round, and half will be yellow D. All of the male peas will have Jacobs syndrome E. None of the above
