In the California poppy, an allele for yellow flowers (C) is dominant over an allele for white flowers (c). At an independently assorting locus, an allele for entire petals (F) is dominant over an allele for fringed petals (f). A plant that is homozygous for yellow and entire petals is crossed with a plant that has white and fringed petals. A resulting F1 plant is then crossed with a plant that has white and fringed petals, and thefollowing progeny are produced: 54 yellow and entire; 58 yellow and fringed; 53 white and entire; and 10 white and fringed.

Question

In the California poppy, an allele for yellow flowers (C) is dominant over an allele for white flowers (c). At an independently assorting locus, an allele for entire petals (F) is dominant over an allele for fringed petals (f). A plant that is homozygous for yellow and entire petals is crossed with a plant that has white and fringed petals. A resulting F1 plant is then crossed with a plant that has white and fringed petals, and the
following progeny are produced: 54 yellow and entire; 58 yellow and fringed; 53 white and entire; and 10 white and fringed.

Q. Use a chi-square test to compare the observed numbers of progeny having each phenotype with those expected for the cross
