The F1 phenotypic ratio is approximately 9:3:3:1, tall cut, tall potato, short cut, short potato. The genotypic ratio is 1:2:2:1:4:2:1:2:1 with all combinations possible. This ratio follows Mendel's Law and shows the traits are not linked. This follows the law of independent assortment - pairs of factors separate independent of one another to form gametes and therefore all possible combinations of factors may occur. …
