Best Answer

Ans. In Mendel's experiment with pea plants, when he crossbred a round seed plant with a wrinkled. seed plant, he found  that  the first generation  (F1)  was only round  seed plants. In the F1 progeny, no wrinkled seed plants were obtained. However, in the F2 progeny both traits round seed and wrinkled seed were obtained in the ratio 3 : 1 respectively. The trait which is obtained in F1 generation is dominant trait, therefore round seed character was dominant
