Concept

Problem: You continue your genetic analysis by crossing the forked and pale mutant lines with each other. The leaves of the F1 are light green (intermediate between pale and wild-type leaves) and forked. The F2 has six phenotypic classes: You designate the forked mutant allele as F (wild type = f+ ) and the pale mutant allele as p (wild type = P). Using these allele symbols, identify the genotypes of the six F2 classes
