Ear #6540 is the F2 generation. The F1 generation was selfed to yield F2 ears. Two parental (P) corn breeds, one true-breeding starchy and the other true-breeding sweet, were crossed to yield F1 progeny.
1. Your objective is to evaluate whether the phenotypic patterns on these ears fits Mendelâ€™s Principle of Segregation. Propose a null and alternative hypothesis that you can evaluate using these corn ears.
Hint: In each hypothesis, be certain that you specify the ratio of phenotypes.
