Step 1

Inheritance is the process of transmitting the traits from parent to offspring. Traits of an organism are controlled by genes (small segment on DNA) which have two or more contrasting pairs known as allele.

Step 2

Alleles controlling a trait can be dominant or recessive. A dominant allele is expressed in both homozygous (pair of alleles is identical on both the homologous chromosomes) and heterozygous (pair of alleles are contrasting on the two homologous chromosomes) conditions. A recessive allele can only express in the case of homozygous condition.

Step 3

In the given case, the brown eyes (B) are dominant over blue eyes (b). The male is homozygous for dominant trait with genotype ‘BB’ and the female has blue ...
