Question

. In maize (corn) plants, a dominant allele I inhibits kernel color,
while the recessive allele i permits color when homozygous.
At a different locus, the dominant allele P causes purple kernel
color, while the homozygous recessive genotype pp causes red
kernels. If plants heterozygous at both loci are crossed, what
will be the phenotypic ratio of the offspring?
