Okay, I totally don't get this. It says: In peas, the alele for green pods(G) is dominant over the alele for yellow pods(g). Below shows the phenotypes of offspring produced from a cross of two plants with green pods.

Green pods - 27 offspring
yellow pods - 9 offspring

What are the two genotypes of the parents? How do you know?

    If both the plants have green pods, but some of the offspring came out with yellow, but most green, one must be GG and the other Gg. Ha! I answered my own question!
