    Solution Preview

    Since the genes are independent, you should analyze their crosses individually.

    For the first gene ("a"), the cross will be Aa X aa.
    Offspring will be either Aa or aa ...

    Solution Summary

    The phenotypic ratios for offspring crosses are determined. The present alleles are analyzed.
