wrinkled trait is recessive. [Hint: Consider the genotype of the parental plants.]A) 4/4 roundB) 1/4 round and 3/4 wrinkledC) 2/4 round and 2/4 wrinkledD) 3/4 round and 1/4 wrinkled
12. Which of the following statements is an example of independent assortment?[Hint: One of Mendel's two most important discoveries was that traits assort independently of each other.]
13. Based on Mendel’s postulate of independent assortment, if 1/4 of the F2 generation is expected to be tall plants and 1/4 are expected to beyellow, what is the probability of a plant being short and yellow?[Hint: Apply the product law.]If the expected frequency of tall plants is 3/4, then the frequency of dwarf plants should be 1/4. If the expected frequency of green plantsis 1/4, then the frequency of yellow plants should be 3/4. Applying the product law indicates that the frequency of dwarf, yellow plantsshould be (1/4)(3/4) = 3/16.
14. Assume tall, yellow, and round are dominant traits over short, green, and wrinkled. In a cross between True breeding tall, yellow, round plantsand true breeding short, green, wrinkled plants, what would be the expected frequency of tall, yellow, wrinkled plants in the F2 generation? [Hint:
