Question

What is the phenotype of a tomato plant with one allele for red skin (R) and one for yellow skin (r)?

Answer

Red skin

The phenotype refers to the physical appearance of an organism, determined by its genetic makeup. In this case, the presence of one R allele results in red skin overriding the expression of the yellow skin allele (r), leading to the expression of the red skin trait.
