NEET Botany Principles of Inheritance & Variation Questions Solved


A pure breeding pea plant with the dominant phenotype of character A and recessive phenotype of character B was crossed with another pure breeding plant with the recessive phenotype of character A and dominant phenotype character B. Offspring of this cross was crossed with a homozygous recessive for both the characters A and B. The following results were obtained. 

22 were phenotypically dominant of A and recessive of B

22 were phenotypically recessive for both A and B

22 were phenotypically recessive for A and dominant for B

22 were phenotypically dominant for both A and B 

The results show that 

(1) genes A and B are linked

(2) independent segregation of genes A and B

(3) Mendelian dihybrid inheritance

(4) polygenic inheritance.
