Dear Student

When Mendel crossed pure bred tall pea plants with pure bred short pea plants, he found that only tall plants were produced in F1generation. Mendel, further crossed the tall pea plants obtained in F1generation with dwarf plants and obtained the ratio of Tall: Short plant 3 : 1 in F2generation. This experiment proved that traits are inherited independently so other intermediate traits or new traits were formed.

Thanks
