would have contained four phenotypes in a 9:3:3:1 ratio
would have contained only individuals that were heterozygous at both loci
would have contained no individuals that were heterozygous at both loci
None of the listed responses is correct.
would have deviated from the 9:3:3:1 phenotypic ratio that is predicted by the law of independent assortment
