(I) the Allele is the alternative form of a gene or in other terms, the variant of a gene. If there are two alleles at a locus, p and q are used to represent their frequencies. The frequencies of all alleles in a population will add up to 1. Therefore, in this case, if the red allele, CW is p=0.7, then the frequency of the white allele in this population (p) is 0.3.(ii) by the square of punnet the expected frequencies of the genotypes of the offspring generation will be 0.49 CRCR (red flowers, oh.42 CRCW (pink flowers) and 0.09 CWCW (white flowers).
