The dominant gene (G) produces green hair in mermaids and
the recessive gene (g) produces blue hair. Webbed fingers
are due to the dominant gene (F) and normal fingers are
recessive (f). A mermaid who was heterozygous for hair
color and who had normal fingers had a father with blue
hair and webbed fingers and a mother with green hair and
webbed fingers. What are the genotypes of all individuals
(as completely as possible)?

The dominant gene (G) produces green hair in mermaids and the recessive gene (g) produces blue hai..

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?

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?
