    Hi Forum,

    So I am having trouble with my homework because I wasn't listening in class as usual

    I have been searching around the web but have found no answers, this is year 10 genetics so it should be easy enough for most.

    I am stuck on this question:

    1) A brown eyed homozygous male is crossed with a blue eyed female. The brown eyed gene is dominant over the blue eyed gene.

    a) List the genotypes of each parent:

    So yeah if someone can please explain what is going on in that question that would be great, and I'll start listening to my teacher in science

    No direct homework answers on the science forum.

    However, here are some clues....

    Ask yourself: What does homogenious and dominent mean?

    So what two alleles much be present in the male?

    What does the brown dominant allele mean imply about the two alleles of the female?

    sometimes it helps to make an tic-tac toe looking diagram with male on the left and female on top.

    You'll get it.
