Asked by KSHITIJ PAL | 24th Dec, 2013, 07:49: PM

Expert Answer:

(a) The Law of Dominance: In a cross between contrasting homozygous individuals, only one form of the trait will appear in the F1 generation - this trait is the dominant trait.
(b) The Law of Segragation: During the formation of gametes, alleles responsible for a trait separate; this allows for recombination during fertilization.
(c) The Law of Independent Assortment: Alleles responsible for different traits are distributed to gametes (and thus the offspring) independently of each other.
