In fruit flies, vestigial wings (v) are recessive to normal wings (V).

In fruit flies, vestigial wings (v) are recessive to normal wings (V).  In a breeding study, 6,000 flies homozygous for vestigial wings mate at random with 4,000 flies homozygous for the normal allele.
a. What is the frequency of each genotype in the F1 generation?
b. What would the proportion of phenotypes be?
c. What is the frequency of the two alleles, V and v, in the F1 generation?
These ideas are examined.
