Question

Suppose that unicorns have one gene that codes for color, where S is silver and s is white. The unicorns also have another gene that codes for tail color, where P is purple and p is pink.

If these two genes are unlinked, what is the probability that a cross between Ss Pp × Ss pp parents will produce two out of eight offspring that are white with pink tail?
