39. When two light yellow flowers (YW) are crossed, there are four equally likely possible outcomes for the geneti makeup of the offspring: yellow (YY), light yellow(YW), light yellow(WY), and white (WW). If two light yellow snapdragons are crossed, what is the probability that the offspring will be (a) light yellow, (b) yellow, and (c) white? (a) If two light yellow snapdragons are crossed, the probability that the offspring will be light yellow i s 0.5 (Do not round.) (b) If two light yellow snapdragons are crossed, the probability that the offspring will be yellow i s 0.25 (Do not round.) (c) If two light yellow snapdragons are crossed, the probability that the offspring will be white i s 0.25 (Do not round.) 40.
