Expert Answer:

The height of the plant AABB = 40 cm (10 + 10 + 10 + 10 = 40)

The height of the plant AaBb = 30 cm (10 + 5 + 10 + 5 = 30)

Thus, it can be concluded that every dominant allele contributes a height of 10 cm while every recessive allele contributes a height of 5 cm.

Thus, the height of the plant aabb = 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 20 cm.
