Expert Answer:

Plant with round yellow seeds (RRYY) was crossed with the plant bearing wrinkled green seeds (rryy).

                                   Phenotypic Ratio: 9:3:3:1

F1 Generation: All plants obtained were heterozygous tall. Plants from F1 generation were self-pollinated to obtain F2 generation.

F2 Generation: One homozygous tall plant, two heterozygous tall plants and one homozygous dwarf plant were obtained.

The ratio obtained by breeding two pairs of contrasting characters is called dihybrid ratio.
