In Drosophila melanogaster, white eyes (w) is an X-linked recessive mutation. Normal eyes are red (W). At the autosomal wing shape locus, normal shaped wings (Vg) are dominant to vestigial wings (vg). The following cross was made:

XWXw Vgvg x XWY Vgvg

What proportion of the progeny from this cross will be females with red eyes and vestigial wings? The answer must be a numerical value rounded properly to 4 decimal digits. Do not write the answer as a fraction or percentage.


Is the value here 0.125?
