Post-quiz: 3.1 Monohybrid Cross and Punnett Squares

For the information necessary in completing this quiz, refer to Web Tutorial 3.1 Monohybrid Cross and Punnett Squares and Section 3.2 The Monohybrid Cross Reveals How One Trait Is Transmitted from Generation to Generation in your textbook.

This activity contains 10 questions.

Question 1.
Mendel's plants in the parental or P1 generation were true-breeding. The phrase 'true-breeding' means that these peas came from plants that are __.

Question 8.
A test cross is designed to determine the genotype of a parent with the dominant phenotype. A test cross produces progeny that are ½ tall and ½ dwarf. What is the genotype of the tall parent?

End of Question 8


Question 9.
Mendel also studied other pea traits. He crossed two true breeding plants, one with purple flowers and one with white flowers. All of the progeny had purple flowers. The purple phenotype is said to be __.
