Genetic Problems: Monohybrid, Dihybrid, and Test Crosses

1. In hamsters, black coat is dominant to white coat and rough coat is dominant
to smooth coat. If two heterozygous black-rough coated hamsters where
mated
a. What would be the phenotype ratio of the F1 generation?
b. What would be the genotype ratios of the F1 generation?

2. In garden peas, axial flower position is dominant and terminal flower position
is recessive; tall vine is dominant and short vine recessive. A plant known to
be purebred for tall vine and axial flowers is crossed with a plant having
short vines and bearing terminal flowers.
a. What is the phenotype of the offspring?
b. What is the genotype of the offspring?
c. Predict the types of offspring (their phenotypes) that would appear in
the F2 generation and their ratio.

3. In dogs, wirehair is a dominant trait, smooth hair is recessive. Two wire-


haired dogs produce a male puppy that is wire-haired. To find out most
quickly whether he carries the allele for smooth hair, he should be mated to
what type of female?

4. In a certain animal, a breed is known that always has a hairy tail; another
breed is known that always has a naked tail. How would you determine which
trait is dominant?

5. In cocker spaniels, black is a dominant trait (B), red is recessive (b). Solid
color is dominant (S) and white spotting is recessive (s). A red male was
mated to a black-and-white female. They had five puppies as follows: 1 black,
1 red, 1 black-and-white, and 2 red-and-white. What are the genotypes of
the parents?

6. Two plants having red flowers are mated. When their F1 offspring are
studied, it is found that 95 have red flowers and 31 have white flowers.
What is the genotype of the parents and diagram a cross to support your
answer.
