Question

How many off springs in the above cross are homozygous for green pod color?

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3
  4. None of the above

hintHint:

When both the alleles of a gene are same it is called as homozygous.

The correct answer is: 1


    • The green pod is considered dominant with GG or Gg as genotype.
    • The yellow pod is recessive with gg as its genotype.
    • The F1 generation has genotype of Gg.
    • The F2 generation is produced by self cross of Gg, which is represented as follows:
    • Gametes G g
      G GG Gg
      g Gg gg
      The homozygous green pod is represented by GG which is only 1 in number.
