two fruitflies were mated. Red eys and normal wings are dominant to black eyes and vestigial wings. Female: Red eyes, normal wings. Male: Red eyes, vestigial wings.

a) what are the possible genotypes of the female
b) what are the possible genotypes of the male;
c) pick one of the possible genotypes for each parent and perform a cross.
d) report the genotypic ratios
e? report the phenotypic rations

Do your punnett square. I will be happy to critique your thinking on this.
