Expert Answer:

According to Mendel\'s law of inheritance, In the inheritance of more than one pair of traits in a cross simultaneously, the factors responsible for each pair of traits are distributed independently to the gametes. In the dihybrid cross between the pea plants having round-yellow seeds and wrinkled green seeds, the ratio obtained in F2 generation is 9:3:3:1 i.e. Round-yellow =9; Round-green = 3; Wrinkled-yellow = 3; Wrinkled green = 1.
