Solution

Mendel used pea plant (Pisum sativum) for his experiments. When Mendel crossed tall and short plants, the progeny obtained in Fl generation was tall. When the Fl plants were selfed, the F2 generation showed three tall and one dwarf plants. The genotypic ratio of F2 generation is 1: 2: 1 (TT: Tt: Tt: tt) and the phenotypic ratio is 3: 1 (Tall: Dwarf).
