A cross between two pea plants with axial flowers and inflated pods gives the following offspringg: 20 with axial flowers and inflated pods, 7 with axial flowers and constricted pods, and 5 with terminal flowers and inflated pods. What is the most probable genotype for the two parents? Explain the results and show the Punnett square. How can the explanation be checked?

    terminal is resessive and so is constricted. Most probable combo is heterozygous. Heteros come out to a 9:3:3:1 ratio. You can check it with that. Its not doing to be exact, but then again nature never is
