Can I get this proofread please?

The hypothesis of this experiment claimed the apterous mutation would be recessive. The results from all eight lab sections supported the hypothesis, but unfortunately the results from lab section seven did not support it. Based on the chi square analysis data from all eight lab sections, it indicated that it was probable for more than half of the total flies to inherit the wild type phenotype, while the rest would inherit the apterous phenotype. Therefore, these results approved the hypothesis because there was a quarter of flies that inherited the apterous phenotype, indicating it was recessive. The chi square analysis results from lab section seven disapproved with the hypothesis because the results revealed there was more than a quarter of flies who inherited the apterous phenotype. This concluded the apterous phenotype was not recessive.
