Expert Answer:

Large number of experimentation and studies are essential to determine whether a trait is dominant or recessive. After carrying out a series of crosses, the pedigree analysis will give us an idea about the trait.

There are several points to be considered while determining the traits as dominant or recessive like linkage, number of alleles for the trait, codominance, incomplete dominance, lethal genes etc. Mendelian laws govern the pattern of inheritance in several crosses.
