Answer:

Hi Ahmed,

Mendel performed experiments on pea plant considering the following seven traits:

  1. Flower color is purple or white
  2. Flower position is axil or terminal
  3. Stem length is long or short
  4. Seed shape is round or wrinkled
  5. Seed color is yellow or green
  6. Pod shape is inflated or constricted
  7. Pod color is yellow or green

Based on his experiments he conclude three things:

  1. The inheritance of each trait is determined by certain "factors", which are now known as genes, that are passed on to future generations unchanged.
  2. An individual inherits one factor from each parent for each trait.
  3. Certain traits may not be seen in an individual or a progeny but can still be passed on to the next generation.
