Step 1

Since we are entitled to answer up to 3 sub-parts, we’ll answer the first 3 as you have not mentioned the subparts you need help with. Please resubmit the question and specify the other subparts you’d like to get answered.

Step 2

The genotype is defined as the number of sets of genes present in the cell of an organism. While the phenotype is defined as the expression of the traits or characters.

In the given question tall plant having genotype, TT is crossed with a short plant having tt genotype.

Step 3

In the given question only one trait is specified thus, it is a type of monohybrid cross. The Punnett square depicts the result of the cross. In a Mendelian cross, the parent is crossed, and the progeny obtained is known as the F1 generation.

In the given question, tall an...
