The cross of true-breeding yellow and green seeded pea plants can only produce yellow seeded progeny.

A. True

B. False

This question was posed to me during an interview for a job.

The doubt is from Inheritance of One Gene-1 topic in section Principles of Inheritance and Variation of Biology – Class 12

Correct answer is A. True

For explanation: Being homozygous, these parents will produce all heterozygous individuals. Since yellow is dominant over green seed, the phenotype can be seen in the heterozygous state too. Thus, all progeny will be yellow seeded.
