# Problem: Radish flowers may be red, purple, or white. A cross between a red-flowered plant and a white-flowered plant yields all-purple offspring. The part of the radish we eat may be oval or long, with long being the dominant characteristic.If true-breeding red long radishes are crossed with true breeding white oval radishes, the F1 will be expected to be which of the following?a. White and longb. Purple and ovalc. Red and ovald. Purple and longe. Red and long
