    Answer:

    Please find the explanation below

    Explanation:

    Gregor Mendel (1822 – 1884) who is referred to as the FATHER OF GENETICS was an Austrian monk that contributed immensely to the principle of inheritance. He worked and conducted several experiments with the pea plant (Pisium sativum).

    Mendel inheritance explains how traits are passed down from parents to offsprings. Mendel proposed three laws that governs inheritance namely: law of dominance, law of segregation and law of independent assortment of genes. The law of dominance states that one allele of a gene will always mask the phenotypic expression of another allele of the same gene in a heterozygous state.

    The masking allele is called DOMINANT ALLELE while the allele being masked is called RECESSIVE ALLELE.
