6a. A plant population with red, pink, and white flowers is found near mirror lake. You take samples home and carry out a large number of genetic crosses. If you cross plants with white flowers to ones with white flowers, all the offspring have white flowers. If you cross plants with white flowers to ones with pink flowers, in some cases all the offspring have pink flowers, whereas in others half the offspring have pink, and half have white. If you cross plants with white flowers with ones with red flowers, in some cases half the offspring have red and half have pink, whereas in other cases half the offspring have red and half have white. Propose a hypothesis that is consistent with all of these results. Be sure to state number of genes and number of alleles each, and any properties (dominant? recessive? etc) associated with the alleles. 6b. For the hypothesis, propose one experiment (a genetic cross or set of genetic crosses) that will test your hypothesis.
