Question
2. In humans, widow's peak (W) is dominant over a continuous hairline (w), and short fingers (F)
are dominant over long fingers (f). Two parents, both with a widow's peak and short fingers,
have a child with continuous hairline and long fingers. Using Punnett squares, determine the
genotype of the parents.
