In horses, B = black, b = brown, T = trotter, t = pacer. A black pacer mated to a brown trotter produces a black trotter offspring year after year. What are the probable genotypes?

In human beings, brown eyes are usually dominant over blue eyes. Suppose a blue-eyed man marries a brown-eyed woman whose father was blue-eyed. What proportion of their children would you predict to have blue eyes?

A brown-eyed man whose father was brown-eyed and whose mother was blue-eyed married a blue-eyed woman whose mother and father were both brown-eyed. The couple has a blue-eyed son. What are the genotypes of all individuals?

In hogs a gene that produces a white belt around the animal's body is dominant over its allele for a uniform body. Another independent dominant gene produces fusion of the hoof (syndactyly). Suppose a uniformly colored hog homozygous for syndactyly is mated with a normal footed hog homozygous for the belted character. What would be the phenotype of the F1? If the F1's interbreed, what would be the phenotypic ratio of the F2?

The gene for tallness (T) is dominant over the gene for shortness (t) in pea plants. A homozygous dominant pea plant is crossed with a heterozygous pea plant, and 200 seeds are produced. Approximately how many of these seeds can be expected to produce plants that are homozygous dominant?

People who can roll their tongues contain a dominant allele for tongue rolling. If people do not contain the tongue rolling gene, then they cannot roll their tongue no matter how hard they try. Consider the following situation: If a homozygous dominant tongue roller mates with a homozygous recessive non-tongue roller, then what is the probability of the offspring inheriting the tongue rolling gene?

Flower position, stem length, and seed shape were three traits that were studied by Mendel. Each is controlled by an independently assorting gene. If a plant that is heterozygous for all three traits was allowed to self- fertilize, what proportion of the offspring would be expected to show all three dominant phenotypes?

In cucumbers normal leaves (N) are dominant to curled leaves (n) and elongated fruit (L) is dominant to spherical fruit and these genes are linked on the same chromosome. If a pure-breeding normal-leaved, elongated fruit cucumber is crossed with a curled-leaved, spherical fruit cucumber, what will be the phenotype of the F1? the phenotypic ratio of the F2?

Consider two linked autosomal genes. The dominant allele C of the first gene causes cataracts of the eye, whereas its recessive allele produces normal eyes. The dominant allele P causes polydactyly (an extra finger) whereas its allele (p) produces a normal number of fingers. A man with cataracts and normal fingers marries a woman with polydactyly and normal eyes. Their son has both polydactyly and cataracts and he marries a woman with neither trait. What is the probability that their first child will have cataracts and polydactyly?
