Hi MCAT_Retaker,

Yes, you're right -- there was a data entry error there. We will fix it ASAP so that the right answer appears as correct.

Thanks for pointing it out!

Also, for this in green...if one parent is homozygous wild type, wont 0% of the children show the phenotype?

this might be reading too much into it. but for the explanation, isn't the pink flowers an example of incomplete dominance. the explanation makes it seem that its an example of the sickle cell

Hi MCAT_Retaker,

You're absolutely right about the inheritance pattern -- should be "heterozygous", and we'll fix that promptly. Re: the wording on Q4, the idea is definitely that the concept of "incomplete dominance" applies to the example of the pink flowers, NOT to sickle-cell.

Thanks for pointing this out!
