Detached earlobes are dominant. A child inherits genes with the genotype: EE and ee. What is the chance that they will have detached earlobes? 25% chance 50% chance 75% chance 100% chance

    So they inherited genotype EE or ee? if it's E_ anything then it's detached only if he inherited ee, will his earlobes be not detached

    wait is this "A child inherits genes with the genotype: EE and ee" saying that those were the parents genotypes?

    oh, that's some really bad wording. it's 100% because no matter what, he will get E from one parent, thus dominant phenotype will be expressed

    Okay, all that is saying that all of the offspring will be Ee because the E allele is present the dominant phenotype will be expressed - the dominant phenotype is detached earlobes
