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 weight of the fruit of one variety of squashes is determined by three pairs of genes: AABBCC produces 6 lb squashes and aabbcc produces 3 lb squashes. Each dominant allele adds 1/2 lb tothe base weight (3 lb). If a pure breeding line that produced 6 lb squashes was crossed with a pure breeding line that produced 3 lb squashes, what would be the phenotypic ratio of the F1 and the F2?
